Question: 

Hello. I am a physician/health reporter working on a story about cost of catching up on vaccines for a young adult never immunized as a kid. For ex: child of anti-vaxer parents. Looking at Tdap-IPV, MMR, Var, Men, HPV and influenza for 1st visit. 

Answer: 

ImmunizeBC's question and answer service is intended for members of the public. Health care providers are encouraged to contact their local health unit. Find the location near you here.

In BC, the publicly funded (free) vaccine schedule for a young adult who has never received vaccines in childhood is here. The vaccines you need as an adult depend on your age, health conditions, job, lifestyle, travel plans and the vaccines you received in the past. Some are provided for free, and others may need to be purchased.
