Expanding Access to Vaccines

Read time: 6 minutes

A new law (Public Act 12 – 1) created the Connecticut Vaccine Program (CVP). It requires health care providers who give pediatric vaccines to get the vaccines through the state in most cases. By buying more vaccines from the federal contract, we can get more vaccine to Connecticut children at a lower cost. Through the CVP, children in Connecticut can now get three new vaccines:


  1. pneumococcal conjugate
  2. influenza (flu)
  3. Hepatitis A

These three vaccines are needed for children to be enrolled in day care, and vaccination for both Hepatitis A and influenza are needed for pre-kindergarten enrollment.
