My shot records were burned up in my parents house fire years ago and my doctor said that if I can't find them that I should get them updated. For some reason I feel uneasy about this. Has anyone here had immunizations while pregnant?
I wonder if he just meant "you should get them updated" but not particularly right NOW...kwim? I don't think I'd risk that either...you can always have them done in a few months and all will be just fine You are protected through the herd anyway
Hmm...They should have another copy around somewhere right? I know my old dr's had a paper copy and a computer copy, I don't understand it. Maybe there is another copy out there. I would just tell them I'm pregnant you can "update me" in November when I'm not pregnant. The only shot I received while pregnant was the flu shot with KJ, I didn't get it with Owen or this previous one just because I was too lazy to figure out how to get one.
i agree someone out there def. has a copy. im pretty sure your old doc would have them. depending on how long youve been out of school they may still have them. by the way ive only had a flu vac while pregnant, which is mandatory pretty much where i am. i would think what your ob is looking for is if your immune to certain things.... they should be able to tell that from blood work they draw from you... i dont remember my doc ever asking me for my vac. chart... he always drew my blood and told me what i was immune to.
