What do you do when 8 month old had some vaccines, but doesn't know which ones, no records.
Every reasonable effort should be made to locate a patient's immunization record. However, if it cannot be located, then the recommendation is to revaccinate according to their current age. The concern is the risk of localized reaction with the more immunogenic vaccines like tetanus and diphtheria-containing vaccines. In some situations you may want to do some serologic testing for antibody
What would you do with 5 year old who has records, up to day on all vaccines except never has varicell vaccine. Parent reports child had chicken pox and gives accurate description?

No need to give Hib vaccine but can receive varicella vaccination.
