Certificate Typos in Transcript

Hey all,
I've sent my transcript to ECFMG & it has 3 typos .... FINAL is FIANL, PSYCHIATRY is PHYCIATRY & one more ..... nothing major, but will it cause any problems in the future or should I apply for another one in my medical school (dunno whether they'll give another one) ....... Also would it have any impact during my interviews later ....

I would probably contact medical school and ask them to produce a new one. Tell them that people will laugh at you when they see these silly mistakes and it's not good for the school's reputation.

I don't think there will be a major problem if you don't correct it but it doesn't look nice.
