While I'm not horrifically concerned about the current measles outbreaks, I was interested to hear that I am in the age group of folks who maybe have only ever had one round of MMR vaccinations.
I looked to see if I could find some immunization records but the only one I have on hand is one I was given when I went in for the bird flu vaccination a few years back.
So I looked up what to do about getting my old records and since I didn't grow up here I'd have to call the health authority of where I grew up.
I knew they'd be overwhelmed with calls, but I went ahead and gave them a shout yesterday.
They had a whole pre recorded message about measles and such and I decided not to wait on the line to get through to them right now to ask for a copy of my records, instead, I'll just go in and see my doctor and see what she has to say about it.
But it did make me realize, there are a few things about my health that without records, I'm not exactly sure about!
