Question: 

I missed HPV Vaccine by 1 YEAR (I was born in 1993) in school and the free catch-up program 2012-2015 (my doctor never told me) so now I'm not eligible to get it for free anymore?

Answer: 

In BC, the list of persons eligible for the publicly funded (free) HPV9 vaccine is available here. If you do not meet the free criteria, the HPV vaccines can be purchased at most pharmacies and travel health clinics. Some health insurance plans may cover the cost of the vaccine; check with your insurance provider. Information about why all vaccines aren't free is here.
