    Double Dosing my 4 year old of vaccines

    My daughter's doctors staff did not take record of her for year old shots that occurred back in Nov 2016, I can't get her enrolled into school if it's not on her record but I know they were done because I was there holding her... My question is can a double dose of these vaccines harm her health or mental capacity in any way? I don't want to have her double dosed but I don't want to hold her back from her education either.
