Q Is it legal for the county to pay for the cost of Hepatitis-B vaccinations for volunteer firefighters?

A No. The county has no authority to pay medical expenses of a volunteer firefighter who is not a county employee. However, assuming the consideration is adequate; the cost of vaccinations may be included in the contract for fire protection between the county board of supervisors and the volunteer fire department.
