Vaccines for Children (VFC)

The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program is a vaccine supply program that allows enrolled healthcare providers to give immunizations to eligible children. The intent is to remove cost as a barrier from receiving timely immunizations. VFC is considered one of our nation’s most successful public-private partnerships for improving public health.

Vaccines for Adults at Risk (VFAAR)

The Vaccines for Adults at Risk (VFAAR) Program makes vaccine available to select providers serving adults at high-risk for vaccine preventable diseases. The adult immunization program started in 1994, targeting at-risk adults in shelters with Hepatitis A & B, influenza, and Td vaccines. The program has since expanded to include more community partners and vaccines, but still has the goal of serving the mostly medically at-risk adults in Philadelphia.

KIDS Plus Immunization Information System (IIS)

The KIDS Plus Immunization Information System (IIS) formerly known as KIDS Registry, is a confidential, population-based, computerized system that collects and disseminates consolidated immunization information for Philadelphia residents of all ages. Health care professionals and patients can be assured that their immunization records are safe and complete and will be available to them for years to come.
