TX: Metro Health laptop containing children's vaccination information stolen

Fox San Antonio reports that a laptop with up to 300 patients’ personal information was stolen last month from  Metro Health [San Antonio’s Metropolitan Health District]

There does not seem to be any notice on Metro Health’s site explaining where the laptop was located at the time of the theft. WOAI reports, however, that the laptop, which contained vaccination records from the Vaccines for Children program, has been recovered. They are the only ones to report that it has been recovered, as the Fox report and another report by Kens5 do not indicate that it has been recovered.

Personal information included names, dates of birth, immunization information, and unique identifiers for the doctors.

The breach was detected on May 30, and those affected have already been notified.
