Is there a place that offers free reasonably priced HPV vaccine for women that arent Canadian nationals in Montreal

The vaccine in Quebec is free only under certain circumstances, to girls between the ages of 9 and 17, so your sister at age 22 is too old to take advantage of it.You don’t have to be a Canadian national in that case; just enrolled in a Quebec school and be within the age requirements.Adults under age 26 also can get it for free if they have HIV or a weakened immune system.

My understanding is that the immune system changes with age, so after age 14 three doses are required instead of two, and also that adults over 17 stand a much better chance of having been exposed already.Most Canadian adults have been exposed to the HPV at some point in their lives.Your sister should definitely speak to someone at a clinic.

If she is at school (it would be university, given her age) then the school has a health services office that can explain whether she is a good candidate for the vaccine, and how she can get it.I’m having trouble finding accurate figures for cost, but at $120 per shot, $360 for the full course of three shots is the actual cost, but she might be eligible to have some or all of it paid, depending on what her health insurance is.I understand that students have certain kinds of extra health insurance, which may very well include this kind of thing.
