NJVFC Vaccines for Children
Introduced in 1994 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New Jersey VFC is a federally funded, state-operated vaccine supply program that provides pediatric vaccines at no cost to doctors who serve children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. Physicians may charge office visit and administration fees based on a government fee schedule. There are over 1,000 medical offices enrolled in the New Jersey VFC program and the majority are private providers. Contact Us
