Vaccines for Children Program (VFC)

The VFC Program offers vaccines at no cost for eligible children.  Children through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine:

  • Medicaid-eligible
  • Uninsured
  • American Indian or Alaska native
  • Underinsured

Parents should bring identification and insurance card visit. Children whose health insurance covers the cost of vaccinations are not eligible for VFC vaccines. Children enrolled in the Florida KidCare Program, including MediKids and the Healthy Kids program, are insured and therefore not eligible to receive VFC vaccines.

Please note: If your child has a pediatrician that provides immunizations, it is recommended that you take your child to their pediatrician for immunizations.
