Question Difference between a civil surgeon filling out I-693 completely vs. "transcript"

I have all the vaccinations and reports that the I-693 requires (and more).

Just to be thorough with what I mean, I have original reports of all the following from certified medical centers in California:

Mumps
Measles
Rubella
Polio
Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids
Hepatitis A
Hepatitis B
Influenza
Meningococcal
Pneumococcal
Pertussis
Varicella
HIV + RPR/Syphilis test
TB Skin test

The only things I do not have (becuase I cannot get any medical center to give me) are:

Haemophilus influenzae type B
Rotavirus

The civil surgeons near me charge a minimum of $150 to complete the I-693.

All of them say that that they will have to rerun certain tests because they cannot trust the results even if they are from a medical center in the U.S.!

However, some of them are ready to provide me with, what they call a "transcript" for $50 but the receptionists are unable to explain how that would be different from the civil surgeon filling out I-693 completely.

Is a $50 "transcript" sufficient for the I-693 or do I have to fork out a minimum of $150 to complete the I-693 with information I already have the results of (but cannot get the civil surgeon to accept)?

(As an aside: none of these civil surgeons accept insurance, where my deductible is $0 for these tests, and I have to pay them by cash or check!)

First, 693 need more than vaccine. It also include a physical exam.

Second, theCS must accept vaccines and TB skin test from outside provider. For TB skin test, it need to be within a certain period ... I think 6 months but pls check

Third, if the CS wants to conduct vaccines again, do it, pay, get the report and then write a letter to CS saying it is illegal and you will report them if they do not refund your money. It will work wonders
