Question: 

My son is 18 and is leaving for university. Are there recommended vaccinations he needs at this point?

Answer: 

For your 18 year-old son, check his vaccination records against the current vaccines recommended for adults in BC here. Your son may also benefit from additional vaccines, such as hepatitis A or meningococcal-C-ACYW. Some are provided for free, and others may need to be purchased at most pharmacies or travel clinics. Services vary throughout BC.
