  • Uninsured or Medicaid eligible
  • American Indian or Alaskan native
  • Underinsured (have insurance that does not cover vaccines or that camps coverage for vaccines, after the maximum coverage has been reached)
    If VFC eligible, there are no fees for cost of the vaccine, only for the administration of the vaccine.
