PROJECT:

Keep Loved One’s Health records together

 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month and time to get the kids updated on their shots, physicals, and eye exams in preparation for the new school year.  The Center for Disease Control has a great site that gives immunization schedules and a printable log to track your child’s immunizations.

To keep immunization and other health records organized, print this 5×7″ label and affix to a 3-ring binder, accordion file, or file folder.  We’ve also include file labels to use on individual folders or dividers.
