Health Advisory

VFA Vaccine Administration

To:       All Vaccine for Adult (VFA) Providers
From:  Vermont Immunization Program
Date: Dec. 20, 2010

– Please Distribute Widely –        

Effective immediately, VFA vaccines may be administered to any adult age 19 years and older, regardless of residency. VFA vaccines still must be provided by a VFA-enrolled primary care provider, obstetric/gynecology provider, or through a hospital birthing center.

This change has been made as a result of concerns expressed to the Health Department by primary care providers and by members of the public, and in support of our public health goal to improve vaccine coverage among adults.
