I wouldn't worry about it. Our house burned down when I was a kid, and my parents were unable to get the right shot records for me. Their copy burned in the house and for whatever reason - the doctor's didn't have the copy - or I'm thinking they might have not known who to call to get it or just where it was located - because that doctor had recently moved office locations.

I got kicked out of school until my shot records were up to date. So I had to have all those shots re-taken in order to get them on record. It was fine. I went in 3 or 4 times. One time she had a line up of 9 shots. Don't know how many shots total that I had to re-take but I'm very healthy. That was a couple decades ago and I haven't had any issues at all. If anything, it seems like it might have done good a little bit because I am extremely healthy and immune to things other people aren't immune to.

I've never gotten the flew. I've never had allergies. I've never had even an ear infection. Simple things I see other people get - I have to get on here to learn about, and I used to not know the best kinds of medicines to keep in my medicine cabinet. People would ask for basic stuff when they'd be at my house and I wouldn't have it. Not saying that you need to go re-take all your shots - but if you have to retake one for some reason - eh... don't worry about it
