Question: 

Husband has polycythemia and 87 year old mom has multiple health issues. Do I pay for flu vaccine or not?

Answer: 

Based on the information you have provided us with, there is a good chance that you are eligible for the publicly funded (free) influenza (flu) vaccine.  However, we recommend that you speak with your immunizing health care provider (public health nurse, pharmacist, or family doctor) who can gather more information from you and confirm whether or not you are eligible for the free vaccine.
