Today, I learned that my doctor lost all of my immunization records. I can't start law school without them. FML

I wonder if you can sue him? I guess now you'll never know.

What a douche doctor!

I don't know about douche, but he is a 'Bastard'..

I'm not sure it's the doctor's fault, but that sure is shot-y record keeping! :D

You can get some simple blood work done and it shows what you have immunity to / have been vaccinated for.

Yes it's called a titer test. It's not a big deal don't worry. Your doctor however should know about this test and should have recommended it to you...maybe suggest it :)

DocBastard, damn you!!!!

Damn docs need to get their shot straight.

I wonder if you can sue him? I guess now you'll never know.

Yes, because a doctor of any practice is not allowed to delete accounts of any patient they have ever seen, even if they died in 1950 or before. If the doctor saw them, their account stays. Thats why hospitals have servers with dozens of terabyte drives

Where the hell do you get your information? We have to keep records for a few years, then we can destroy them.

36- no WONDER they have humongous file rooms--all the records from back in the day!

But... but Doc! That's smartman! He knows medical info better than anyone! ;)

Well it's off to the black market with you!

Yes, totally. Lets all go learn law on the black market!

Pretty sure they meant get fake immunization records on the black market lol. All the same anyways.

Well I went to "Med school" on Craigslist.. 3 nights a week in this guy Achs Moorder's basement. Nice guy, I'm still waiting on my certificate though.

I can go to any doctor in Michigan and get my shot records from since I was born. Is this just a Michigan thing? I thought it was anywhere as long as you were born in that state.

In NY we do not have that. We do not report to a central record keeping agency when giving immunizations.

I know Florida has Floridashots.com where the health care professional that does your vaccine can input the information. It's really simple to use and keep track of. You can also print the form needed from the site, and it even tells you if the patient is missing a necessary vaccine. I thought every state had their own version

Nope most all states have a statewide data base where vaccinations are entered. Any healthcare professional would be able to acess it.

There is definitely not one in Oklahoma, I'll tell you that much.

Why do you need immunization records for Law School?

You do for any college! At least in America, anway. :)

A lot of colleges require that you have certain shots before entering the school. It's for the safety of everyone on campus since diseases will spread quickly in crowded areas.

You need immunization records to go to any college. They need to know that you aren't carrying some infectious disease that you could spread to your class mates. College is like the best place in the world for disease spreading because of all the people living in such close quarters.

You need innoculation records to attend any sort of educational facility, due to the risk of exposing students to deadly disease. I personally wouldn't want to pay thousands of dollars to attend university, just to contract a horrible debilitating illness.

Apparently I can't spell, nor can I read my writing... Should have said 'Not in America, anYway.' With the Y. Sorry :P

i never had too turn them in myself. however, my high school sent them in with everything else

Haven't you watched some zombie movies? It shows the infection spreads fast in crowded places like colleges. Didn't you hear about 2020?

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

As do i. I have been able to slip under the wire without a flu shot or a tetnus shot for the last 7 years.

#28: Personally, I believe in correct grammar and punctuation. However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain from ripping you apart this once. Wow*, America*, you*, immunized*, That*, sucks*, I'd*, country*, where*, don't*, I*, don't*, immunization*.

28- Doc did a blog on this. Have fun at your pox parties. Dumbass

Miss_sqwert - You don't BELIEVE in immunization? So you don't believe it something that eradicated polio and smallpox off the planet? You don't believe in something that has drastically reduced the incidence of mumps, measles, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, and chicken pox? You're an idiot.

Oh, and there he is.

Doc, I don't believe the smallpox is truly eradicated.. I know they keep samples in labs, but I mean aside from that...

#50; It!s most likely for testing purposes. I'm sure that labs won't infect us on purpose.

#28 You've GOT to be kidding me, right? Are you trying to die as fast as possible? With all the diseases and shit we have and thousands of ways to catch them, you're probably not going to make it to 45. If even that. And since you don't believe in it, if you have kids that must mean you don't take them to get vaccinated either, correct? Kids have way lower immune systems than teens/young adults, if you have small children you're gonna have hell to pay for not getting them vaccinated.

Apparently you don't believe in grammar either.

28 - Kill yourself.

57 I meant besides the labs there's probably still smallpox out there

Actually no you don't. It's completely against the law to require vaccines. People aren't smart enough to realize this. Do some research about what you are willingly getting injected into your body!

No, the law doesn't require you to get vaccinations, but if you choose not to get vaccinated, you can be refused from schools, jobs, or even living communities. Also, if you or anyone else infect someone who ends up dying, you can be charged.

I totally agree, my brotherI was very badly affected by a DTAP vaccination, and now he is permanently disabled. There are ways around vaccination, religious reasons or health reasons. I am an non-citizen greencard holder in America currently, and I have a medical waver stating vaccines have more negative qualities than good. Legally, you have the right to refuse vaccinations, and I suggest if you do have them, you spread them out over a long period of time. It's really simple, we know that different medications interact with each other, it's very likely different vaccines do to.

Totally not true. If you have beliefs that include not altering your body, or the risks outweigh the benefits, you can talk to your doctor about it. He'll try to change your mind, but he'll sign off a waver and allow you to be in schools. 45% of Americans aren't vaccinated, and there isn't any sort of health disaster. Don't believe everything you hear.

Immunisations are a personal choice. If you believe the research then have the vaccinations. If you don't, ( and yes there is plenty of research to say that vaccinations aren't necessary) then don't. Personally I have my own viewpoint, as I don't believe that there is enough monitoring and reporting of adverse side effects to ensure we have the full picture. If you have an adverse side effect, and that means anything from a headache to an elevated temperature to localised tenderness, these are supposed to be reported to your doctor, who should then keep a database and report back to the health board and then the pharma company. That is how proper monitoring should be done. But apparently less than 1 in 500 adverse reactions are reported to the doctor, and even less back to the appropriate authorities. However my son is vaccinated for most things ( due to travelling to third world countries where the infection rate makes it necessary). Surely as a previous poster said you could be a conscientious objector and still be allowed entry? Or what if you were allergic or sensitive to certain vaccines? There must be an option for those cases.

#39:[ Personally, I believe in correct grammar and punctuation. However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain from ripping you apart this once.] Do you understand that you used incorrect puntucation? You did not add commas, to denote additional information, where you should have. "However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain from ripping you apart this once. . . Should be... "However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain, from ripping you apart, this once." itz tha internetz, not an english essay. who give a shit about puncteratioon? but if youse feel like correcting a mofo, get you shit strayt. word.

... The grammar in this status is correct. No fragments, spelling errors, or punctuation mistakes. Please, explain to me how it is incorrect.

Call your previous school. They have it all on file

Or the county health center, they have everyone's file digitally.

Wear a haz-mat suit if all else fails.

Yikes, and that was your one shot. I guess you'll needle-little help to get in now.

That doctor is gonna need a lawyer.

i didn't turn my own in, my high school did with all my other records. maybe try that.
