All members can go to the "Travel Medicine Vaccination Centre" @ #240 - 3020 Lincoln Avenue to get their Hep A and/or Hep B shots. The City of Coquitlam is billed directly. This visit must be pre-arranged by each member by phoning "Elsie Marie Valentino" RN @ 604-681-5261 ext # 105 and making an appointment.
Currently, there is no recommendation for a routine booster dose after the initial Hepatitis B vaccination series is completed. Data shows that vaccine-induced hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) levels might decline over time; however, immune memory (anamnestic anti-HBs response) remains intact indefinitely following immunization. People with declining antibody levels are still protected against clinical illness and chronic disease.
