Vaccine For Children (VFC) Program

The VFC Program covers vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

 (VFC) Program Eligibility

The VFC Program ensures no VFC child contracts a vaccine-preventable disease because of his or her parent's inability to pay for the vaccine or its administrative goal of the VFC Program.
