Injection Charges for Vaccines
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
In a recent release, Health Canada announced that it would pay for H1N1 vaccines for all Canadians. If you get an H1N1 vaccine from the Health Authority, there is no charge. If, however, you receive it from a pharmacy or doctor, you may be charged a nominal fee for the injection. This charge is not eligible for reimbursement under our Extended Health Care plans.
