The problem has been complicated for me since I've moved several times in the past five years, switched jobs, switched insurance companies, and switched doctors and dentists. Needless to say, I've spent a lot of time filling out medical paperwork. And I can't even imagine how much more complicated this would be if I had kids!
So I decided to create a document for my computer where I can easily access all of this information. It has already been a huge timesaver, and I have it here for you to download and use as well!
VACCINATION AND HEALTH HISTORY RECORD: TO EDIT AND SAVE
I'm planning to keep mine saved on my computer for easy editing. However, I'm also including a printable version for you in case you like to keep paper copies. Just print out as many of each page as you need. The document includes:
Page 1: Basic Information
For those of you with kids, I included this cover sheet so that you can create a different record for each child, and easily keep them straight.
Page 2: Current Providers
This is the spot to write basic contact information for doctors, dentists, insurance companies and pharmacies. There are two extra spaces to include information for others, such as allergists or dermatologists.
If you've moved or switched doctors a lot, this page is for you! Keep a record of your recent past providers and the dates that you used their services.
Your doctor will have a copy of this as well, but I've found it very handy to have my own record on hand. You can easily look down your list and find the dates of each vaccination.
