How Do I Enroll in the Program?
Enrolling in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program is as simple as following these steps! Requirements for provider enrollment are simple, yet ensure accountability.
Request an Enrollment Packet
You may request an enrollment packet by faxing a request to the VFC Program at
- Your practice name and mailing address
- Contact person and phone number (including your fax number and email address if available)
Complete the Enrollment Forms
Upon receipt of your VFC Program Enrollment Packet, please review, complete, and sign your enrollment forms. The Provider Enrollment Form must be signed by the clinic's medical director or equivalent. Organizations with multiple facilities must complete enrollment forms for each site. Please mail or fax these forms to:
Florida Department of Health
Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program
4052 Bald Cypress Way, BIN A-11
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1719
Fax number: (850) 245-4734
After we verify your provider enrollment and profile, a VFC Program representative will issue you a Personal Identification Number (PIN), which the provider will refer to for all contacts and transactions. Within two weeks, a VFC Program representative will contact the provider to verbally outline and review the state and federal VFC Program guidelines.
Schedule a Site Visit Review
An Immunization Program field operations representative will arrange a new provider site visit and approve your facility for enrollment in the VFC Program.
The orientation site visit will include:
- A review of VFC Program requirements
- A review of vaccine storage and handling procedures
- A verification that the provider’s clinic has a proper refrigerator/freezer unit to store VFC Program vaccines
- An opportunity to answer provider or staff questions
The Provider Reenrollment Form is the provider's agreement to comply with all conditions of the VFC Program. This form must be signed and submitted annually. The medical director or equivalent in a group practice with many providers must sign the Provider Reenrollment Form for the entire group. All other providers within the practice must be listed on the Provider List Section.
