Immunizations can be scheduled with the Health Department Refugee Health Nurse, H'Lat Mlo, who can be reached at 336-641-4801

When all required immunizations have been completed, call H'Lat Mlo to make a green card immunization paperwork appointment, known as form I-693. 

At the appointment, each refugee in the family who is 18+ years old must be present with their:

  • Social Security Card
  • ID
  • I-94 form
  • $40 per person.

From the appointment, they will leave with a sealed envelope for USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services). Once finished they can schedule an appointment for the green card application. Refer to: http://worldreliefhighpoint.org/green-card-application
