Vaccines For Children

The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program was created in 1993 in response to a measles epidemic. It provides free vaccines to eligible children (uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicaid) through specific VFC providers.

Although the vaccines are free, parents may be charged a fee for the office visit and an administration fee. Still, “if the family can’t afford the fee per shot, the fee must be excused.”
