The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program helps provide vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. This helps ensure that all children have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule. These vaccines protect babies, young children, and adolescents from 16 diseases.
Vaccines available through the VFC Program are those recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) purchases and distributes the vaccines to private and public health care providers who are enrolled in the VFC Program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services fund the program through Medicaid.
