Question: 

Can you buy privately a single vaccine? Interested in pertussis but only option has four other vaccines in the shot. Would also like to break up MMR. Please advise. Thank you

Answer: 

Some of the vaccines that are routinely recommended for children in BC are available as single antigen vaccines (e.g., hepatitis B vaccine and varicella vaccine).  Others are available only as combination vaccines (e.g., measles, mumps, rubella vaccine and pertussis-containing vaccines).
It is recommended that children be vaccinated according to the routine schedule.  We recommend that you discuss this further with your doctor or public health nurse. You can find the contact information for your local public health unit here.
