Vaccines for Children
Vaccines for Children Program
The Utah Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program provides vaccines to participating providers for children birth through 18 years of age who are:
- Enrolled in Medicaid
- Enrolled in the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
- American Indian/Alaskan Native
- Not insured
- Under-insured* (insurance does not cover immunizations)
*Under-insured children may receive VFC-supplied vaccines only at Federally Qualified Health Centers
(FQHC) or Medicare Certified Rural Health Centers RHC).
NOTE: VFC providers (local health departments and private providers) can vaccinate under-insured patients with their own privately-purchased vaccine and follow their clinic policies for collection of payment. Please check with your provider to determine if this option is available.
VFC vaccines are available at no cost or low-cost for eligible children.
