Question: 

If I have my Indian Status number, are the cost of immunizations covered- hep A/B/C ?

Answer: 

All Aboriginal children and adolescents aged 6 months to 18 years are eligible for publicly funded (free) Hep A vaccine. To see who else is eligible, check here. All BC residents must meet the eligibility criteria for Hep B to get publicly funded vaccine. You can find out who is eligible here. Anyone who is not eligible for a free hepatitis A and B vaccine can purchase it at most pharmacies and travel clinics. Currently, there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C. For other questions regarding vaccines or eligibility, please contact your immunization provider.
