I-693 form - Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record is filled by all those applying for adjustment of status in the US, that is becoming a permanent resident and getting a green card.

First of all follow the link in the resource section that says I-693 form. It will take you to the USCIS site and you can download the I693 and the instructions for completing the form. Don't go to other sites. This is the official site of USCIS.
The second step is to find a civil surgeon in your area. you will find the link on the right side of the page.
Start making phone calls and see which offers the best deal for you. They will not take medical insurance for the physical examination and it should cost around 150 dollars. Ask if you can do all other required procedures though your personal doctor - that if you have medical insurance. Your medical insurance should cover immunizations and blood tests.
If they let you do everything though your doctor, you should get an appointment as soon as possible. Take the special instructions to your doctor. He can have to blood tested to see what immunizations you need, in case you do not have any proof of you vaccinations.
When you have everything ready, take all your papers to the civil surgeon. They will fill I693 and give you a sealed envelope to send to USCIS.
If you do not have medical insurance you might as well do all procedures over there and not waste any more time.
If you entered the US with a visa that required medical exams in your home country, but you get a letter from USCIS saying that they can't find any medical record, don't waste you time calling them. They won't be able to help. Forget Infopass, too. Just do everything you can to have everything ready as soon as you can.
Some people tried contacting their representatives, but I did not waste my time with that!
