Missing School Vaccination Boosters

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone else have their secondary school vaccines lost and managed to get hold of them again? I'm going through the vaccination list and according to my GP I haven't had anything since I was 3!
I know I had 10 year boosters when I was about 14/15 that would just about be in date still, but GP supposedly don't have a copy and are just shrugging their shoulders offering no help in trying to find them. We had an outside place come in to administer them and then send to the GP. The school have no record, and the vaccination team for my borough say they wouldn't have them as it was done by a different group 9/10 years ago. I asked my GP whether they could give me the vaccines because according to them I've had none, and I need a booster for Tdap, but they won't do it. I've tried calling different places for where I live specifically (Tower Hamlets) and no joy. If no one can get hold of them then I guess I'll have to begrudgingly pay for it at the medical. 🙄
Anyone have the same problem and manage to find them? If so, how?

I knew I'd had some injections at school but we moved so much that somewhere the documents disappeared. I just got everything that wasn't in my GP record at the surgery. I hadn't had MMR according to their records, but I know I did, and they were able to give me two doses at no charge.


For Tdap it did take a bit of persuasion, I had to print out a lot of documents that proved to them that I needed it. They initially tried to tell me USA has no travel vaccination requirements (which, sure, but this isn't for a holiday...) and then tried to send me to a travel clinic. The squeaky wheel gets the grease tho. I was able to get them all that day but I had to pay for the Tdap as they could only do it privately. They told me that one is only routinely given to pregnant women, hence they didn't want to give me it at first. Really had to play up the "if you don't give me this injection I won't be able to get the visa and proceed with my wedding" as I was doing K-1 and then the nurse prac was very keen to help me out.
