Series vaccinations like Hep A?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee is scheduling her medical with Dr. Cheema in Vancouver. She does not have several of the vaccines listed as necessary, including rotavirus and Hep A. 


My understanding is that whatever she doesn't have, the doc would be able to give her at the time of the medical interview. But is it still okay to get series immunizations like Hep A at that time, considering it's given six months apart? What are the consequences if she starts the series vaccinations at that time?

She only needs the vaccines for her age group. Here is a link to what she needs based on her age. (thanks to ethan-shannon )

Email then for a list of required vaccinations. She doesn’t need everything that is listed on the website, it depends on her age group. 


She can get the shots for free (I believe) from her doctor and bring in documentation showing she has immunity (she can give verbal confirmation For varicella if she’s had chickenpox). But Dr cheema will also give shots for a fee (and the vaccination list they email will include a price list for those). 


If shes unsure what she needs, she can request a blood test from her doctor to check her titers. 


I saw dr Cheema for my exam back in November. I had such a positive experience!
