Question: 

my 11 year old daughter received immunizations forms for grade 6, she was vaccinated for hep b nov 3 2003, jan 19 2004, and nov 23 2004. does she need a booster shot for grade 6?

Answer: 

The hepatitis B vaccine is provided free to children in grade 6 who have not been immunized against hepatitis B.  If a child has had 3 doses of the hepatitis B vaccine at a younger age, they do not need any more doses of the vaccine.  

 

If you have questions about how to fill out the consent form, we encourage you contact your local public health unit and ask to speak with your child's school nurse. You can find the contact information for your local public health unit here: http://immunizebc.ca/finder
