Vaccines For Children

Monitoring Compliance and the Vaccines for Children Program

What is VFC?

Established in 1994, the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program is a federally funded program, overseen by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), created to make vaccines available for children whose families can't afford them. The VFC Program works like this: the CDC buys and distributes vaccines to state and local health agencies, VFC registered local physicians offices and clinics. Those private offices and clinics then distribute those vaccines to qualifying children.

VFC Coordinators and Providers

"Vaccine management is a term used to describe the storage and handling practices that should be followed by VFC providers. Vaccines must be stored properly from the time they are manufactured until the time they are administered to ensure those who receive the vaccines are protected from disease." -Center for Disease Control

Temperature Recording

VFC providers are required to check and record refrigerator temperatures twice daily. With DicksonOne continuous monitoring, this process is easier, more organized, and reliable.
