Question: 

Hi, I am 46 and need my immunization records. If I can't find them and need to be re-vaccinated. How many vaccines can I get at once? I just need the standard vaccines a child gets

Answer: 

You will find tips for locating immunization records here. Without a record of immunization (or proof of immunity to a disease), a person is considered unimmunized and unprotected. They should generally be vaccinated (or revaccinated) to ensure protection. It is safe to repeat vaccines. Blood tests to determine immunity to vaccine-preventable diseases are not routinely recommended or available for all diseases. Your health care provider can help determine what is best for you.
