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.
