Demand that the BC Government fund the vaccines that keep seniors healthy

Demand that the BC Government fund the vaccines that keep seniors healthy

CARP BC's "Give Us Your Best Shot, BC! campaign" is demanding that the BC Government fully fund critical vaccinations for seniors; particularly for influenza, pneumania, and shingles.

Protection against these 'Big 3' illnesses can cost a retired couple $3,000.00 within a 10 year span, causing 40% of seniors to be unable to afford them, and putting their health at significant risk.

We are demanding the BC government fully fund the high-dose vaccines that are proven to be most effective in keeping seniors healthy.

Write to Your MP

Seniors in BC deserve fair and equitable access to the best vaccines. It's their right and it's time for the BC Government to take immediate action to support the health of the province's older residents.

Write to your MP with a powerful message: BC's seniors demand fully funded access to the vaccines that empower them to take control of their health.

One preventive vaccination can save a life, and you deserve to be in control of your health.
