Question: 

My baby was born in China and he is visitor in Canada now. He is 8 months now. Where can we take the immunization? We live in Richmond.

Answer: 

Travelers to BC from outside of Canada may be immunized according to the BC routine schedule while they are in the province.  Vaccines provided as part of the routine schedule are publicly funded (free) and are available from public health units.  Vaccines that are not publicly funded in BC can be purchased at travel clinics

We recommend that you contact the Richmond Public Health Unit and ask to speak with a public health nurse. The public health nurse can gather more information from you and can make a recommendation for your child.
