Question: 

Hi, my son's 10 yr Tetanus vacc is due next year. Is there a cost involved to receive his booster shot? Thank you & look forward to your reply.

Answer: 

The Tetanus and Diphtheria (Td) Vaccine is provided for free in BC.

Adults who were immunized against tetanus and diphtheria when they were younger should get a booster dose of the Td vaccine every 10 years. 

Adults can get the vaccine from public health units and most pharmacies. Some doctors' offices also provide vaccines. Services vary across BC.
