EB2 to EB1C porting - please help

USCIS accepted my EB1C I 140 but rejected my AOS saying I am not current. But, we had requested EB2 priority date porting in the cover letter which would have made us current. Please advise what to do?

I-485 approval
EB1 India, PD 05/30/2017.

I noticed that in the August 2020 visa bulletin, my priority date just became current. Based on recent experiences, how long does it take for USCIS to send through the final approval notice and GC?

Medical RFE
Hello all,
I received RFE for medical.

Those applying for adjustment of status must now present evidence of having been vaccinated against mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B, hepatitis B and varicella. Waivers of this vaccination documentation are available to those who (1) obtain the vaccines for which they do not have documentation, (2) obtain a medical prescription from a USCIS-designated physician that the vaccine(s) would be medically inappropriate, or (3) demonstrate that vaccination would violate a religious belief.

What happens if you don't have documentation for these vaccinations? Does everyone go through taking vaccination again? and these are pretty expensive. What is your experience?
