Keeping Track of Medical Records

Here is a FREE  program to help you keep track of your medical records on your own computer.  It's not on a server or website, its on just your PC.  

I got this site from Kim Komando and she always has safe sites and programs so I trust it. 

There is always that last minute thing you need to fill out that asks when your kids had their last shots.  I even put my Pets records on it!
