Changes in VFC vaccinations

The Vaccines for Children Fund (VFC) is changing the distribution of their vaccinations come January first. Previously our office was able to offer VFC vaccinations for people who had insurance but that insurance didn't cover vaccines (under-insured). Starting in January we can only give VFC vaccinations for children with Medicaid, Chip and those who don't have insurance (self-pay). For those families who are under-insured there is still a way to get the vaccines. They will be distributed out of a "Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC)" or a "Medicare Certified Rural Health Center (RHC). The closest centers to our office are

Center City CHC
461 South 400 East
Salt Lake City, UT 84111
801-539-0993

or

Oquirrh View CHC
4745 South 3200 West
Salt Lake City, UT 84118
801-964-6214


Please call if you have any questions.
