It is by asking your physician or nurse to record all the vaccinations that are given to you that you may ensure to maintain your child's immunization record up-to-date. The name and details of the provider and the clinic must be written down as well.
In case you are not having a complete record of your or your child's past immunizations, you may approach the following organizations:
State health department : A copy of your child's immunization record may be requested. The immunization information system contains these details as well.
Physician's office or public health clinic : Doctors' offices as well as clinics will keep the immunization records only for a few years.
School : Children's schools keep the records related to immunization for a year or so.
College health services.
Military records : Health information from the veteran's administration maybe requested for immunization records.
