Question: 

Is Zostavax II covered for those on disability

Answer: 

The shingles vaccine (ZOSTAVAX® II) is not currently publicly funded in BC for any groups. The vaccine can be purchased at most travel clinics and pharmacies for about $200. Some health insurance plans may cover the cost of the vaccine.  The best way for a person to find out if they have coverage is to contact their insurance provider/health plan directly.
