Question: 

Is it free for temporary resident under 26 years old, like people with work permit, to take HPV9 vaccine?

Answer: 

Certain people, such as some holders of study and/or work permits that are valid for a period of six months or more (including post-secondary international students),  may be considered residents and are eligible for some publicly-funded (free) vaccines. Please speak with a nurse at your local health unit to see if you would be considered a resident.

Some people up to 26 years of age are eligible for the HPV-9 vaccine for free. Go here to learn more.

The HPV9 vaccine is also recommended but not provided free for adult women up to 45 years of age. You can purchase and receive the HPV-9 vaccine from your local pharmacy or travel health clinic.
