Paying For Vaccines
Vaccines for Children (VFC), a federally-funded program administrated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offers vaccines at no cost for eligible children through VFC-enrolled doctors. This helps ensure that all children in the U.S. have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule.
Your child is eligible for the VFC program if he or she is younger than 19 and meets one of the following criteria:
- American Indian or Alaska Native
- Underinsured (Underinsured children are only eligible for VFC Vaccines through Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics)
Ask your doctor if he or she is a VFC Program provider. There are over 40,000 doctors enrolled in the VFC Program nationwide.
