Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) Provider


Why Should I Become a VFC Provider?

  • It will enhance your ability to provide government purchased vaccine to your eligible patients and reduces your out of pocket costs.

  • You can provide all ACIP-recommended vaccines to your eligible patients.

  • It will enhance services you provide to populations receiving Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment services (EPSDT).

  • Any provider authorized to prescribe vaccines under your state law can be a VFC Provider.

  • Over the past decade, both general and immunization specific pediatric "best practices" have included the administering of a child's immunizations in their medical home (their regular source of primary care).

How do I become a VFC provider?

  • First, contact the Immunization Program’s VFC Coordinator at (302) 744-1060 or email at immunizedph@state.de.us for a Provider Enrollment Package to be mailed to you.

  • Complete the States Provider Enrollment form and return them as soon as possible.

  • Prepare your office and staff for a site visit to go over the administrative requirements of the program and to ensure proper storage and handling of vaccines when you receive them.

  • Let your patients know you are now a VFC Provider.

Is there any financial incentive? Yes, there is:

  • VFC allows you to charge an administrative fee to offset your costs of doing business.

  • Participating in VFC reduces your out of pocket costs because you don't have to buy vaccine for your eligible patients with your own money.

  • VFC will save your eligible patients money because the vaccines are provided at no cost
