  • A list of the medications you are currently taking, if any.
  • Immunization records-if you do not have your records, a blood test may be performed to determine the presence of certain antibodies. The blood test is free of charge. If antibodies are not present you will be informed immediately and given the option of having the vaccines administered by our staff at a cost, visit with your doctor, or go to any of the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District offices.
