The Vaccines for Children Program, established by an act of Congress in 1993, helps families by providing free vaccines to doctors who serve eligible children 0 through 18 years of age. VFC providers can order most routine childhood vaccines. New vaccines, including new combination vaccines approved by the FDA and recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), are also supplied to enrolled providers through the VFC Program.

To be eligible, children must be 18 years of age or younger and meet any one of the following criteria:
