If you don't have immunization document from your country then you have to go to a physician in USA and they will give you shots and then give you proof of your immunization.

They will most probably do TB test for you.

There is another (more expensive) way. Instead of taking the shots you can ask the doctor to check your antibody titer to infectious diseases and it will prove you are immune (if you have taken the shots in your country but have no records).
