Are you a provider interested in participating in the VFC?
VFC is a Federal program that provides vaccines free of charge to health care providers who serve patients under 19 years of age who meet the criteria listed below:
- Are eligible for Medicaid; or
- Have no health insurance; or
- Have health insurance, but it does not cover immunizations AND go to a federally qualified health center; or
- Are Native American or Alaskan Native.
If you are interested in participating in the VFC Program, please call (202) 576-9319.
What is the Immunization Registry?
The Immunization Registry stores immunization records for children as well as adults who live in the District of Columbia. The Registry helps providers to keep children updated on their immunizations, avoid unnecessary immunizations because of lost records, and helps with disease surveillance and outbreak control.
How do I report immunizations to the Registry?
Providers may transmit immunization records electronically via electronic medical record (EMR) or fax.
Schools, Head Start and Licensed Child Development Centers may fax immunization records and updates to the Immunization Registry.
For additional information, please call (202) 576-9301.
