A Vial of Life is a list of your medical history, current medications, and emergency contacts. You keep it on the fridge so paramedics can give you proper medical treatment during an emergency.
Think of the Vial of Life as the longer version of a medical ID bracelet. Filling out a Vial of Life form is an important part of medical emergency preparedness. It’s not just for older adults—anyone who spends time alone should fill one out.
