Question: 

I have an work permit and I just had an interview they require getting hep A vaccine but I don't have insurance since I'm from the states

Answer: 

If you are eligible for a free hepatitis A vaccine, you can get it from your local public health unit or pharmacy. Some family doctors also provide vaccines. Services vary across BC.

If you are not eligible for a free hepatitis A vaccine, you can purchase the vaccine from most pharmacies and travel clinics.

For more information about the hepatitis A vaccine, including a list of people eligible for the free vaccine, see the HealthLinkBC File: Hepatitis A Vaccine.

If you have further questions, please call your local community health centre/health unit. You will find the number here.
