Texas Vaccines For Children Program

The Texas Vaccines For Children Program (TVFC) makes vaccines available to eligible children of Texas. These vaccines are available at no cost to providers, in order to immunize eligible children (birth - 18 years of age). These vaccines are supplied to doctors, local health departments and Department of State Health Services Sub-offices to be administered to eligible children. For more information call the Immunization Division at 254-778-6744

**Providers are authorized to vaccinate CHIP children only if they bill CHIP for services.
