Parents Can't Get Records From Imprisoned Doctor's Office
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 | Sarah Dietze
 

Drs. Mark and Scott Blankenburg are in prison. The pediatricians’ patient records are equally inaccessible: according to WKRC Cincinnati, parents can’t obtain their child’s vaccination records in time for fall kindergarten enrollment.

Kelli Harvey of Trenton said, “I can’t my children to any other doctor because no one will accept them without previous records for their shot history. I have a 5 year old son that’s getting ready to go to kindergarten. He’s not going to be able to go.”

WKRC recommends calling the department of public health to obtain immunization records absent a physician. Harvey was ultimately able to obtain her son’s history this way. Find out more about accessing medical records for yourself or your child.
