Vaccination Card - Cant find

Hi. I would like to know what is it that I can do with the above situation? I just got recently divorced and moved out of my house at lease 6months ago. I left everything in my house including my childs vaccine card. I asked my ex to kindly please look for it and I will come pick it up whenever... he is still an angry man, shouts, screams, tells me how useless I am and that I dont take care of things that are important. Now he says that the card is not in his house and I should better find it - otherwise???? I nearly got hospitalised with this man and I am not going to let him get into me anymore. Now - my question is... what do I do now. My daughter is due for Vit A' s this month and the only thing that I have is a copy of the card that I have made when making copies for her previous cretche. Am I allowed to use that copy? How is that going to affect her when she is about to go to school? She is 4years at the moment. Your ssistance will be greatly appreciated. God Bless...

This is a very difficult situation for you. It seems as if you will not be able to find your daughter's vaccination record. The best thing to do is to go to your local clinic during a quiet time, if there is such a period, and ask the sister to help write up a new record for her with you giving the approximate dates when she had a her various vaccinations.
