  • Health Records FAQ #4 Where can I find my vaccination (immunization) records?

     The records that exist are the ones you or your parents were given when the vaccines were administered and in the medical records of the office or agency where they were given, at least for a limited time until the records are purged.  There are several places to look for them:

    • Check with your doctor or public health clinic
    • Ask parents or other caregivers if they have records from your childhood doctor’s visits
    • Check your baby book or other childhood documents
    • Check with your high school, however they may only keep records for 5 years
    • Check with your employers as they may have required immunizations
    • Check your military records
    • Contact your state’s health department to request a copy of your information on their registry. In Massachusetts this is the MIIS – Massachusetts Immunization Information System https://www.mass.gov/files/documents/2016/07/ov/miis-immunization-record-request.pdf

    If you are unable to find all of your records, you may be able to get a blood test to see if you have immunity to some of the vaccine-preventable diseases.  You may also need to get some of the vaccines.
