I have 2 daughters,one got the Meningococcal vaccine recently at school,the other is 20 years and not in school.I live in the Okanagan, should I be getting the vaccine for her too?


The meningococcal vaccine is available for purchase at travel clincs and pharmacies, however we recommend that you consult your immunization provider for recommendations specific to your daughter.

Over the past six months, Interior Health has seen an increasing number of cases of meningococcal disease in 15 to 19 year olds. For more  information about the outbreak in the Okanagan, please check the Interior Health website here.
