Question: 

I am a 77 year old male who did NOT receive any vaccinations as a child because my parents were conscientious objectors. Does Immunize BC cover the cost of the Tdap vaccine?

Answer: 

As an adult with no history of childhood immunizations, health care providers would follow the BC Routine Immunization Schedule - ADULTS 18 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER NOT IMMUNIZED IN CHILDHOOD. This schedule includes Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine. Publicly funded vaccines are available from most pharmacies, some doctors' offices and all heath units. Use the health unit finder.
