Connecticut Vaccine Program (CVP)

The Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) is a federal program that provides all ACIP recommended vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. Not all children are eligible for the VFC Program.

The Connecticut Vaccine Program (CVP) is Connecticut’s expanded pediatric vaccination program. The CVP is state and federally funded (through the VFC Program) and provides vaccines at no cost to all children under the age of 19 years, regardless of insurance status. 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, if available.
