What vaccines do you recommend for female sex workers?
Some sexually transmitted infections can be prevented with vaccines, including hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and HPV. The hepatitis A and B vaccines are recommended for people with multiple sexual partners, and the HPV vaccine is recommended for females up to 45 years of age. The hepatitis B vaccine is free for those with multiple sexual partners, and the hepatitis A vaccine and HPV vaccine may or may not be free depending on whether you meet certain criteria.
In addition, it is important to make sure you are up-to-date on your routine vaccines (vaccines recommended for everyone). You can find B.C.'s routine vaccine schedules and a list of vaccines recommended for adults in B.C. here.
Your health care provider can recommend vaccines for you. If you don't have a health care provider, you can find a clinic here. Vaccines are available from health units, some doctors' offices and clinics, and most pharmacies and travel clinics.
