Childhood Immunizations

Eligibility Requirements

Denton County Public Health provides vaccines through the TVFC program to children 0-18 years of age who are: 

  • Uninsured, or
  • Enrolled in CHIP or Children's Medicaid, or
  • Alaskan Native or American Indian, or
  • Underinsured: 1) A child whose health insurance does not include vaccines; or 2) A child whose insurance covers only selected vaccines - DCHD can provide only the vaccines that are not covered; or 3) A child whose insurance caps vaccine coverage at a certain amount, and the parent has already met that cap.

* We can also vaccinate uninsured college students who are 19 years and older - please complete ADULT clinic paperwork (see Routine Adult Immunizations below)

 What Should I Bring?

  • Complete shot record for each child (a note from a school nurse is not sufficient)

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.
