How do I find my immunization records?
- Helpful hints for finding your immunization records include: Your immunization (shot) record may be found in your family records, such as a baby book or in a booklet that may have been written in by your doctor or public health clinic care giver each time you received a vaccination.
- If you are a graduating high school senior, school personnel may be able to locate immunization records in your cumulative records or health folder before your graduation. After you graduate, records are sent to storage and may not be accessible.
- You may also want to check for records with your doctor or public health clinic. Please keep in mind, however, that immunization records are maintained for a variable number of years, and then usually only by the medical provider who actually gave the vaccines to you.
