    On friday I went to my GP's surgery to pick up my vaccination records, only to be told that they couldn't directly give them to me. The receptionist told me to send a letter to a hospital a couple towns over and that they'd get back to me within 40 days.

    Well, I'm leaving saturday, and I won't know my term time address until then. So I can't really send a letter until next week, otherwise it would go to my home address and I don't really want my parents opening my mail.

    I could try and phone up tomorrow and ask them to send them by the end of the week, but there's no guarantee I'd even get through to the right department, let alone actually agreeing to send them to me without a written request.

    All this in mind, would it be OK not to have them with me on the first day, or in all likelihood, the first few weeks?

    Also, I haven't had a vaccination in ages. I didn't have one in school around year 10 when everyone else had one (for meningitis maybe). So will I need to top up before I go?

    (Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'll be going to Warwick and the welcome guide does says bring vaccination records.)
