For CVP Providers

About The CVP The Connecticut Vaccine Program (CVP) is Connecticut’s expanded pediatric vaccination program. The program is state and federally funded and provides vaccines at no cost to children under the age of 19 years. The CVP was developed in response to CGS Sec. 19a-7f, which requires healthcare providers who administer pediatric vaccines to obtain the vaccines through the Department of Public Health in most cases. The CVP now includes all Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended vaccines for children aged 18 and younger with the exception of HPV vaccine for children aged 13 and older.

The Blue Folder contains all documents associated with being an immunization provider through the CVP.

Vaccine Order and Inventory

As soon as you are enrolled in the CVP, you may begin ordering vaccine. The vaccine order form is due on or before the first business day of each month.

Vaccine Storage and Handling

Proper vaccine storage and handling practices play a very important role in protecting individuals and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccine quality is the shared responsibility of everyone, from the time vaccine is manufactured until it is administered. CDC recommends the following vaccine storage unit types in order of preference:

Data Loggers

As of January 1, 2018, the CDC required all providers to use continuous temperature monitoring devices (data loggers) to monitor vaccines distributed by the VFC program. Routine review and accessibility of temperature data is critical for determining whether vaccine has been properly stored and for assessing usability of vaccine that was involved in a temperature excursion.

To meet program requirements the device must be equipped with:

  • A temperature probe
  • An active temperature display that can be easily read from the outside of the unit
  • The capacity for continuous monitoring and recording capabilities where the data can be routinely downloaded
