Cover Menjugate, Prevnar, and Varivax Vaccines
- Ontario Health Insurance Plan - OHIP
Ohip needs to fund vaccines for Meningitis, Chicken pox Pneumonia and inner ear conditions. Our children deserve this protection. The cost for prevention of these diseases is a small fraction of the cost of what it takes to treat them. We cannot afford to ignore our childrens health, especially when the level of our health care system is falling at an alarming rate.
Publicly funded vaccines
Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus, Polio, Diphtheria, Pertussis (whooping cough), Hemophilus influenza
Not publicly funded
Menjugate (meningitis) $80 to $120 per dose
Prevnar (pneumonia and inner ear infection) $95 to $110 per dose
Varivax (chickenpox) $81 per dose
We call upon OHIP TO publicly fund Menjugate, Prevnar, and Varivax Vaccines. These vaccines are essential to the health of our children.
