View Full Version : Medical Records

03-30-06, 10:37 AM
I was hoping for some assistance. I served 1988-1992.

I was recently accepted to a graduate program at Northern Arizona University to earn my Masters Degree.

The school requires that I provide proof of innoculation for Measles. Does anyone out there know if this might have been provided while I was on active duty? And how does one locate medical records from active duty service?

Thanks much.

Semper fi :iwo:

Good luck. The Navy lost my medical records twice. Once after MCT and once after I checked in with my unit. As a result, I've gotten 3 tet shots and a bunch of other unnessicary shots over again. My buddys are always giving me a hard time, sayin the Docs are looking for me because they lost my records again. SF

Go to www.archives.gov (http://www.archives.gov) and click on 'Military Service records and follow the instructions or go directly to military service records page of the national archives at www.archives.gov/military-service-records/get-service-records.htlml (http://www.archives.gov/military-service-records/get-service-records.htlml) You can also call your local V.a and they will give you the address you can request from depending on branch of service .that takes about 30-60 days. Hope this helps.

Are these people kidding?

I don't recall if MMR was given in boot camp. The MMR is given in two doses--one when a baby is 12-15 months old and then again at 3-5 years of age. This has been the procedure for years.

Rather than waste your time getting your military medical records, I recommend you contact your old pediatrician or a physician who saw you as a teenager. They will have record and you will get what you need in a few days rather than months.
