prepared and kept for each person who requires an HREC. The PHS Form 731
(International Certificate of Vaccination) is a personal record of immunizations received;
it is normally needed for international travel. Active duty personnel usually have
custody of their PHS Form 731. After initial immunizations are reviewed, they are
required to safeguard the record. The PHS Forms 731 for Reserve Component
personnel are filed with their personnel records. The form is usually issued to the
person only upon mobilization, activation, or when traveling internationally. ARNG
units may retain PHS Form 731.

identification parts of this form are completed as described for the SF 600 in paragraph

information is entered on the copy of SF 601. See figure 2-4. For persons allergic to

A DA Label 162 (Emergency Medical Identification Symbol) is placed on the front of the
