UPDATE JANUARY 2019: Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage
HEPATITIS A, HEPATITIS B & TWINRIX VACCINE SHORTAGES
- Canada is currently experiencing a shortage of vaccine for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Twinrix which may extend until early 2019. This shortage of vaccine may affect your travel plans.
- Until this shortage is resolved by the manufacturer, the Travel Health Programs across Saskatchewan will be carefully managing and monitoring our current supply and implementing guidelines on use of existing vaccine supply.
- Residents of Saskatchewan born since January 1, 1984 and attended elementary school in the province would have received Hepatitis B vaccine in grade 6.
