Medical record keeping becomes essential in 2021. When we travelled to Spain in November, we had to prove our vaccination status and verify that we had negative testing on COVID before boarding the flight.

At home, our record noting the insurance status, health problems and medications, is key to allow people to help you in case if you fall sick. This is especially true when you live in the community; people need to know your allergies, your dietary need and activity limitations.
