Award Winning Immunization Providers

Division of Immunization staff conducts combined VFC-AFIX site visits at each of the approximately 390 enrolled VFC Provider sites.  The purpose of the visits are to assess provider compliance with the VFC program (e.g. VFC-eligibility screening, appropriate vaccine storage and handling, monthly accountability reporting, etc.) and provide CDC and grantees with a means to monitor VFC accountability. It also assesses the standard of practice at the immunization provider level and helps identify actions, such as missed opportunities to vaccinate, which may be negatively impacting immunization coverage levels*.
