Vermont Child Vaccine Program / Vermont Adult Vaccine Program

Child receiving flu vaccine

Vermont is a universal state, where the state Immunization Program purchases vaccines from the CDC federal contract at no cost to providers, for use in all children and adults. In order to receive vaccines, a provider practice must enroll in the Vermont Child Vaccine Program (VCVP) and/or Vermont Adult Vaccine Program (VAVP) programs. Vaccines are funded by the federal Vaccines for Children program, fees assessed on health insurers who cover Vermont lives, and limited discretionary federal 317 funding.

The Vermont Child Vaccine Program (VCVP) covers those eligible for the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) program, as well as the privately insured population under age 19.

VFC- Congress created the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program in 1993.  The goal of the VFC Program is to prevent vaccine-preventable diseases by removing or reducing cost barriers.  The VFC program is funded by federal entitlement money guaranteed to each state to buy vaccine for children who are

Vermont adult vaccine program (Vavp) 

In 2007, the Vermont Department of Health initiated a program to provide adult (ages 19-64) vaccines at no cost to provider practices. This program, known as the Vermont Adult Vaccine Program (VAVP) is modeled after the VCVP program. All primary care and OB/GYN providers may enroll.
