Vaccines for Medicaid-Eligible and Uninsured Children
Vaccines for Children (VFC) is a federally-funded nationwide program available in Colorado that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. Eligible children can receive any vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There are over 500 provider offices and community health centers that participate in the VFC program in Colorado. All local public health agencies in Colorado also participate and can serve any child who qualifies.
Children are eligible to receive VFC vaccines if it is before their 19th birthday, and if they are one of the following:
- On Medicaid or Medicaid-eligible
- American Indian or Alaska Native
- Underinsured (underinsured children are only eligible for VFC vaccines through Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics)
Other Ways to Get Vaccinated
Doctors offices, retail shops, pharmacies and local public health agencies all offer routine recommended vaccines–some at no or low-cost.
