Last month we informed you about the 2010 National Scout Jamboree personalized health forms being delayed. The personalized health records are now being distributed. Keep in mind, from the original delayed message, that the forms will take several weeks to be delivered to everyone. If you have not recieved your form yet, do not worry, it should be arriving shortly.
When you do recieve your personalized bar coded Medical Record you will recieve two emails. The first, will have the medical form attached. The form is an adobe acrobat form that is password protected. Your name and contact information will be pre-filled. This email also includes the directions:
Please open the attached Jamboree Medical Form using the password sent to you in a separate email. (Viewing the attachment requires Adobe Reader software. If you do not already have it, go to http://get.adobe.com/reader/ and download it for free.)
You will need to complete Part A by entering in the information into the form before printing it. After printing it, take it to your physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner to have Part B completed by him or her. Once Parts A, B, and C are complete, and you have copied your insurance card onto the last sheet, follow these instructions:
Youth Participant or Adult Leader: Return the form to the Scoutmaster of your Jamboree Troop.
Jamboree Staff: Please fax the form to 972-580-7860.
For additional information please refer to the Jamboree website: www.bsajamboree.org
The second email will contain your password to open the document. This email came within seconds of the first email message with the medical form attached.
See you at the Hill!

The National Jamboree Medical Team has notified participants and staff members that the personalized, bar-coded medical records for the Jamboree have been delayed. (It was unclear if participants recieved an email directly, or if the Council’s were notified. All staff members should have recieved, or will be shortly, the below message.
The Jamboree team is working with our contractor to expedite delivery of your personalized, bar coded medical record for the Jamboree. Deployment was scheduled to begin on July 27th. We are working with the contractor to provide an enhanced medical record to insure that the information you provide is readable by the medical service team. We feel that a slight delay to make this the “BEST, most EXCITING, FUN-FILLED, SAFEST, jamboree EVER!” is worth a short delay.
Once the records begin to go out it is expected that the distribution will take several weeks. If you have an expectation that you will receive your medical form immediately, please understand that the email will be coming. We do not recommend scheduling a medical exam prior to the arrival of your personalized record. Due to the large number of medicals, they will not all go out at one time. The system will send out a duplicate if you have not turned in your record starting during the holidays.
Should you contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any reason, we appreciate your patience with the delay you will experience in receiving a reply. All of our resources are currently dedicated to the delivery of the Jamboree medicals. Most questions can be answered quickly by visiting www.bsajamboree.org and selecting “Be Prepared”. As more information is available, it will be posted on the website.
