In Michigan and across the United States programs are in place to help all parents afford vaccines for their children.
The Vaccines for Children (or VFC) program allows qualified families to get free vaccinations for their children at participating health care providers’ offices. Children from birth through 18 years of age can get VFC vaccines if they:
- Are on Medicaid
- Are eligible for Medicaid
- Do not have health insurance
- Are American Indian or Alaskan Native
- Are under-insured
If your health insurance does not pay anything for vaccines, your child may be able to get VFC vaccines. Check with your child’s health care provider or your local health department.
