VFC Enrollment

​The goal of the Arkansas Department of Health is to ensure that your VFC program is successful. Therefore, it is essential for VFC providers to have a clear understanding of the VFC program. VFC providers are responsible for conducting vital functions such as determining VFC eligibility, monitoring vaccine storage and handling, administering vaccines, and preventing vaccine loss.

VFC Benefits

Many parents can’t afford to pay for vaccines on their own. Being a VFC Program provider is a sound investment in your practice and your patients’ health.  Here are some of the benefits of participating in the VFC Program:

  • The VFC Program provides all routine vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

  • Reduces your up-front costs because you will not have to pay to purchase vaccines for VFC Program-eligible children.

  • Enables your patients to get the vaccines they need during routine appointments at their regular physician’s office.

  • Helps provide quality care to vulnerable children and adolescents.

  • Enrolling in the VFC Program is simple.
