So I know that FERPA trumps HIPAA when a school is involved, but what about an adult getting their childhood records from the county HD?

I called today to ask if I needed to go to any specific site to obtain the record. The lady just read off what I'd had despite me not asking for the information. She'd obtained my full name and DOB.

When I went in to the office, they did not require ID. I just filled in a form, leaving address, phone number, and email blank. I offered my ID but they declined to look at it.

I was told that ID isn't necessary because it's "just" a shot record and those are not "medical records".

Is this a thing, or is it just another example of how back-asswards FL is?
