Health Booklet

Postby neokw77 » Tue Apr 27, 2010 8:44 am

Hi parents,

If we happen to misplace the health booklet for the baby, is there any possibilities to get it replaced? Anyone with experience on this?

Thanks.

It would be "easy" if the child has been seeing the same paed. I've explored this before as I thought I misplaced dd's health book. The nurse told me that we just need to give them a new book and some time and they will try to update the health book based on their records. eg. vaccination,etc....

My dd's paed is Singapore Baby & child clinic and TMC.

Hi MMM,

Actually, I have 2 PD. so give them sometime to update and that is it?

The first PD is in TMC and been seeing him for 3 months and the current one another 3 months. So that should not be long.

So we just call MOH for the new booklet or TMC where he is born?

My impression is that can buy the booklet from TMC. You might want to call the clinic to confirm.

I think what's key is the vaccination records. For DS1, somehow that piece of paper became very koyak (health booklet still around) and my pd issue a new form and wrote down all the dates for past vaccinations - got his clinic chop and all. I just laminate the form and keep it very carefully. It helped that I was with this pd throughout his vaccination years.

PD should maintain a record. Just go back to them with such a form (or empty booklet) and ask them to fill up.
