Wanting to get vaccinated against Hep A & B. What is the process?

If you are eligible for the publicly funded (free) hepatitis A and/or B vaccines, you can get vaccinated at your local public health unit or pharmacy (most but not all pharmacists in BC provide vaccines). Some family doctors also provide vaccines.  

If you are not eligible for the publicly funded hepatitis A and/or B vaccines, you can purchase the vaccines at most pharmacies and travel clinics. The hepatitis A and B vaccines are also available for purchase as a combination vaccine. 

You can contact your local public health unit or pharmacy to find out if you are eligible for the free hepatitis A and B vaccines.  You can also find a list of people eligible for the free hepatitis A and B vaccines in the following HealthLinkBC Files:

HealthLinkBC File: Hepatitis A Vaccine

HealthLinkBC File: Hepatitis B Vaccine
