Most vaccines (including all vaccines that are routinely recommended in BC) do not require a prescription. We do not have a list of all of the vaccines that do not require a prescription. However, all of the vaccines routinely recommended for adults in BC are available without a prescription. You can find a list of these vaccines here.
If you would like to know if a specific vaccine is available without a prescription (that is not listed as recommended in the document linked to above), you can contact your local pharmacy or the BC Pharmacy Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
