Yes I understand she was vaccinated last year but may not be 1 year ago. Did they mention if it is before college check up (before fall) or summer vacations because influenza vaccines mostly given in October and novèmber only.

Another thing could be they wanted to know if she really needed any vaccine because although it recommended for everyone annually but really necessary for patients with copd, cHF etc
