Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) : information for healthcare providers from CDC
Corporate Authors:National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (U.S.)
Description:VFC will benefit your patients and your practice!
Being a VFC provider is a sound investment in your practice and in your patients. It reduces your up-front costs because you will not have to pay to purchase vaccines for VFC-eligible children. Also, you can charge an administrative fee to offset your costs of doing business. Your patients benefit because they won’t have to go somewhere else to get the vaccines they need, and there is no charge to you, the provider.
Children and adolescents are eligible if it is before their 19th birthdays and they meet one or more of the following criteria:
• American Indian or Alaska Native
• Underinsured (Underinsured children are only eligible for VFC Vaccines through FQHC/RHC.)
