Vaccines provided through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program are supplied by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and are purchased in part with federal funds. These vaccines are available at no charge for children through age 18 years, who meet the VFC eligibility guidelines.
In addition, the Children's Immunization Program offers near-cost immunizations to those ineligible for the Vaccines For Children program.
