Question: 

I am a 29 year old female (born 1988) who grew up in BC. How I can determine if I have received the HPV vaccine? What year did this first begin to be offered in BC public schools?

Answer: 

The only way to be sure you received a vaccine is to have a record of immunization. You can find information on locating immunization records here.

The HPV vaccine has been offered to females born in 1994 and later as part of BC’s school based immunization program since 1998.  Females born before 1994 would not have been offered the HPV vaccine as part of BC’s school based program.  

You can visit our HPV page for more information about HPV vaccines.
