Where do school-age children and teens get vaccines?

Question: 

Where do school-age children and teens get vaccines?

Answer: 
School-age children and teens are offered routine vaccines at clinics held at their school. These vaccines are provided for free by public health nurses.
 
Those who miss getting vaccinated at school, who don’t feel comfortable getting vaccinated at school, or who are homeschooled can contact their local *health unit, doctor’s office or pharmacy to make an appointment to get vaccinated for free.
 
 
*Health units are also called public health units, community health centres, or primary care homes in some areas of BC.
