Question: 

Good afternoon, where can I obtain the HPV vaccine for free? This link states that women up to the age of 45 can get it for free. Thx! http://www.immunizebc.ca/diseases-vaccination

Answer: 

The HPV9 vaccine is recommended, but not provided free to adult women 45 years of age and younger born prior to 1994. To see if you are eligible for free HPV vaccine please see here.  Anyone who is not eligible for a free HPV vaccine can purchase it at most pharmacies and travel clinics. Some private health insurance plans cover the cost of the vaccine. If you have further questions, please contact your local public health unit or talk to your immunizion provider. You can find the number of your local health unit here
