Public Health - Seattle & King County

Vaccines for Children Program

Vaccines for Children (VFC) was established in 1993 to remove the barriers of cost and access to attaining childhood immunizations. The program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Washington, and supplies vaccines to providers across the state. Almost 95% of public and private immunization providers in King County are currently enrolled. All children from birth up to the 19th birthday (hepatitis B up to the 20th birthday) are eligible to receive these vaccines; see below for vaccine-specific restrictions.

If you need assistance with these items, please contact us using our online form or call 206-296-4774 and ask for the VFC program.
