PNEUMOCOCCAL

Pneumococcal vaccines protect against pneumococcal infection, a serious disease that sometimes causes death. 
 

There are two types of pneumococcal vaccines as part of BC’s routine immunization program:

  • The pneumococcal conjugate (PCV 13) vaccine that protects against 13 types of pneumococcal bacteria that are privately funded
  • The pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine that protects against 23 types of pneumococcal bacteria that are public funded.
 
Two other pneumococcal conjugate vaccines have recently been approved by Health Canada for infants, children, and adults: 
 
  • Prevnar®20 (PNEU-C-20). 
  • Vaxneuvance® (PNEU-C-15).
These vaccines are not part of BC’s publicly funded (free) vaccine program and can be purchased at some pharmacies and travel clinics. Speak to your health care provider for more information on these vaccines.

Duncan Pharmacy has always provided excellent and friendly service. They truly go above and beyond for their clients. I was in a bind with a prescription I needed urgently and needed to have the prescription transferred from another pharmacy. They took it upon themselves to have my prescription transferred and when they realized they did not have the item in stock they took the time to check other pharmacies in the area and were able to bring it in for me. All within just a couple hours! I cannot tell them how much I appreciate their service.

This is the best pharmacy in town! Everyone there is so friendly, helpful, and comforting. After a profoundly bad experience with another pharmacy in town I am SO happy to have made the switch to Duncan Pharmacy. Thank you for everything you do!

Have been dealing with Duncan Pharmacy since they opened, and always have first rate service, complete listing of all medications taken over the past few years and very prompt filling of prescriptions and inoculations. Recommend the whole staff very highly - way better than the large impersonal pharmacies.

I wish I had switched pharmacies sooner! I'm surprised every time I call they seem to know who it is and every time I go in they remember my name. They always go above and beyond and I am very thankful!

Friendly, helpful service. So lovely to use a pharmacy where people remember your name and your prescriptions. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I switched to Duncan Pharmacy after I saw how kindly they treat all people, such as happily delivering prescriptions to folks who are living on the street and other vulnerable populations. Super pharmacy!
