I volunteer with an organization doing hands-on work with inner city drug addicts and the homeless. We have close contact w/people (blood and fluid). We also work side by side with recovering addicts preparing and serving meals to 300 people per day. Can I be vaccinated for Hep A for free?
The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended and provided free to people at high risk of hepatitis A infection. It is also recommended, but not provided free, for people likely to come in contact with or spread the hepatitis A virus, including food handlers. For more informaiton about hepatitis A and the vaccine, including a list of people eligible for the free vaccine, see the HealthLink BC File: Hepatitis A Vaccine.
