I was recently told that because of my daughters birth year 2003, that she was not covered for HPV9. Then I read on this site she is...can someone please verify???
In BC, the HPV9 vaccine is provided free to girls born in 1994 or later who were not immunized in the school-based program, or did not complete their vaccine series ( up to 26 years of age). If this applies to your daughter, she can still start/complete her HPV vaccine series with the HPV9 vaccine through your local health unit. Find your local health unit here
- If your daughter was fully immunized against HPV in grade 6, she is not eligible for another publicly funded (free) HPV9 series
- For those not eligible, the HPV9 vaccine can be purchased and received from most pharmacies, travel health clinics and some doctors' offices
