Free vaccination clinics are those that are administer vaccines for eligible children at no cost. Doctors enrolled under the Vaccines for Children program administer these vaccines, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are over 44,000 providers enrolled in the VFC program throughout the country.
Any enrolled VFC program provider can administer vaccines under this program, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most pediatricians are VFC-enrolled providers, and each state health department is responsible for managing its own program. All children up to 18 years of age, whether insured, uninsured or underinsured, with American Indian or Alaskan origin and those who are Medicaid eligible qualify for free vaccinations under this program. Children whose health insurance covers the cost of vaccinations are not eligible for VFC vaccines.
