I am planning on getting the HPV-9, Hepatitis A and B, Meningitis Quadrivalent and B, and Influenza vaccines. Where can I get these vaccines and how much will it cost? Also, I am eligible for free vaccination for HPV and Hep A and B (MSM) but how do I prove my eligibility? Thank you.
You can get publicly funded (free) vaccines from your local public health unit. Publicly funded vaccines are also available from a number of pharmacies and some doctors' offices. You will just need to inform the public health nurse, pharmacist or doctor that you self-identify as MSM to get the free Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and HPV9 vaccines (the HPV9 vaccine is free for males 9-26 years of age who have sex with men). Non-publicly funded vaccines can be purchased at most pharmacies or at a travel clinic - you will need to contact the pharmacy or travel clinic for information regarding cost. Influenza vaccines are usually available in October.
