History of Vaccines, from The College of Physicians of Philadelphia

 

Since its inception in 1994, Texas has participated in the Federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. Our version is called the Texas Vaccines for Children Program, or TVFC. This program guarantees that vaccines would be available at no cost to providers, in order to immunize children who meet the eligibility requirements.

Today there are more than 3,000 Texas medical providers enrolled in TVFC. Texas leads the nation in the number of uninsured and underinsured children. Many of these children are not receiving the complete series of immunizations required to protect them from vaccine-preventable diseases. This program ensures that there is not a financial barrier for children without private health insurance.

Denton County Public Health can provide immunizations to children 0-18 through the TVFC program as long as they meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • CHIP: A child who is enrolled in the CHIP program
  • Medicaid: A child who is enrolled in the Medicaid program
  • Uninsured: A child who has NO health insurance coverage
  • American Indian or Alaskan Native
  • Underinsured: A child whose health insurance does not include vaccines; a child whose insurance covers only selected vaccines (TVFC-eligible for non-covered vaccines only); or a child whose insurance caps vaccine coverage at a certain amount. Once that coverage amount is reached, the child is categorized as underinsured.
