known allergies; blood-typing; and HIV (HTLV III) testing. The recordings will be continued on the current record until additional space is required under any single category. In such cases, a new SF 601 will be inserted and retained with the old SFs 601. Concurrently, a thorough verification of the entries will be made and all immunizations brought up to date. Replacement of the current SF 601 is not required for a change in grade, rating, or status of the member. When the health record is closed, all SFs 601 are forwarded together with other parts of the health record.
The name of the medical officer or Medical Department representative administering the immunization or test or determining the nature of the sensitivity reaction will be typed or stamped on the form. Signatures are not required; however, in the event of their use, care should be taken to ensure their legibility.
The medical officer or Medical Department representative administering the immunization is responsible for completing all entries in the appropriate sections of SF 601. For specific immunizing agents for smallpox, cholera, and yellow fever, the manufacturers name and batch or lot number must be recorded.
Entries concerning a determined hypersensitivity to a drug or chemical are typed under Remarks and Recommendations in capitals (e.g., HYPERSENSITIVY TO ASPIRIN, HYPERSENSITIVE TO LIDOCAINE).

A separate SF 602 (Figs. 10-8 and 10-8A) is prepared upon the occurrence of a syphilitic infection, including any complication or sequels. This record remains a permanent part of the health record until the health record is closed. This procedure is applicable regardless of whether or not more than one SF 602 is required during the members term of service. An entry will be made of each leutic examination or test conducted and each course of treatment given. Essentially the form is self-explanatory. Abbreviations used in recording treatment should be those officially recognized, Letter designations should not be used for the medications administered.
