Question: 

We are originally Canadian but living in UK short term. kids born in Canada. We are visiting and I would like my kids to get their chickenpox vaccination in Canada. Whom should we contact?

Answer: 

Travelers to BC from outside of Canada are generally not eligible for routine publicly funded (free) vaccines. Vaccines that are not publicly funded in BC can be purchased at travel clinics or at a pharmacy if your children are 5 years of age and older. If you have questions about your eligibility you could contact the local health unit by finding the number here.
