VFC visits help determine a provider’s compliance with VFC program requirements. This includes identifying potential issues with VFC vaccine accountability and determining whether VFC vaccines are being handled, stored, and administered in accordance with the laws and policies governing the VFC program.  The review and evaluation of VFC provider practices involves assessing verbal, written, and visual evidence encountered during the visit to determine if provider sites are following the requirements of the VFC program.;

 

The goals of these visits are to:

  1. Identify areas where providers are doing well and areas needing additional follow-up.

  2. Identify the educational needs of VFC providers in order to support them with meeting program requirements.

  3. Ensure that VFC-eligible children receive properly managed and viable vaccine.
