COVID-19: Updates for VFC Providers

Please note the following changes regarding re-enrollment:

  • Re-enrollment will be on hold.  All sites that were in the process of re-enrolling will be switched back, and ordering abilities will be granted to all sites again. 
  • Those sites that have a site visit scheduled should reach out to the nurse assigned to their site as they will likely be rescheduling these visits.

The Vaccine for Children Program (VFC) provides vaccinations to children who do not have health insurance or children who are insured but the insurance does not cover immunizations (underinsured). These children are eligible to receive federally funded vaccines at public sites, including Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics. For more information, call the Vaccines for Children program: 1-888-646-6864.
