Question: 

I am an international student in BC with MSP coverage. My wife and son will be joining me next week both on visitor visas. My son has not got any vaccination shots since his birth. He is 8 weeks old, is he going to get vaccinations for free without MSP?

Answer: 

Travelers to BC from outside of Canada are generally not eligible for routine publicly funded vaccines, however, we recommend that you contact your local health unit and ask to speak to a public health nurse. You will find the number here.
