Q&A documents

These documents are developed to support immunization service providers in British Columbia. 

These documents contain supplementary information and should be used as a complement to the guidelines for the use of the vaccine contained in the Communicable Disease Control Manual, Chapter 2, Immunization

These documents are dated to indicate the date of production. New information that reaches the public domain after the production date of these documents is therefore not incorporated, and practitioners must take responsibility to ensure they have the most recent knowledge and are using the most recent guidelines relating to the situation with which they are dealing.
