Hepatitis B vaccine shortage in Ontario
Our office is well aware of the current shortage of Hepatitis B and Twinrix vaccinations since last year. Due to this, it creates a long delay for our new and returning students to complete their Health Form requirements. Please note that you will only have to pay for the Hepatitis B booster shot if your lab blood test result was Non-immunity/Non-reactive/negative. If you cannot find any Hep B/Twinrix vaccines either from your family doctor or Walk in Clinic or pharmacy at this time, please ask your physician/doctor to provide us a medical note regarding this shortage and you are safe to attend clinical/field practice.
