I have lost my son's immunization card!! Is there any way to get a replacement? We moved around a lot when he was younger, so he got his shots at several different places. Does a state agency keep a record of this?

If it was all done in Bexar county, then the records should be here. if not, then I dont think so. Its according to where the shots were done at. Some schools keep the records, its depending on how old he is.

YOu could request copies of school records that sometimes contain shot records. Or you could inquire at the pediatric clinics or whatever health agency you used to get the shots.
If you moved around, there may not be just one place. May have to call several places, then take all the info to his current doc to have it all compiled onto one record.

Good luck!

When we moved, I got my kids' shot records from the state we lived in (in our case WI) I don't know if every state has a registry like that?

I just looked around a little, in TX it is called Immtrac. Just look up Texas Immunization Records. Try typing in the state(s) that you lived in before to see if they have a similar registry.

I would ask for a copy from his last school enrolled at...and anything he/she has received since then might be easier to obtain/reaccomplish than the entire record.

Good luck...having been military, I feel your pain in trying to keep them all together. Each of our 6 kids had two shot records...one that I used and one filed in our important paperwork file. Never lost one, but convinced it was only because I had a backup. Of course, now you can just photo copy it each time you get an update, but that was back in the day.

The state registry is called ImmTrac. This maintains all immunizations records until your child is an adult if your doctor submitted the info. Not all doctors do (ours doesn't - even tho a lot of his clients work in public health!, but I submit it myself). This is maintained by the state, but is the same system that San Antonio Metro Health District (Bexar County) feeds into. So any immunizations done in Bexar should in theory be in that system, again, if the doctor submitted it.
For more info on Immtrac, try
Immunization Branch, ImmTrac Texas Immunization Registry

All the states have a system to track immunizations, though the name may be different. Just do a search for the state + immunization registry.

Also, each doctor's office, even if they didn't submit the record to the state, will have their own record. You can request copies from each. If any shots were done in a public health clinic, that will have been submitted to the registry.
