VFC and SC State Vaccine Program Information and Resources
Federal VFC Program Overview and Forms:
All providers, including those currently enrolled in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program, must complete this enrollment process
to be eligible to receive federally funded VFC vaccine. All providers will utilize the online system called the South Carolina
Immunization Provider Access System (SCI PAS) to enroll in the VFC program https://www.scdhec.gov/SCIPAS/
For those providers completing an initial enrollment into the VFC Program, they will need to establish a new account in SCI PAS. For
those new providers a Provider Identification Number (PIN) will be assigned to the practice site for participation in the VFC
program. Please note: Practices with multiple office locations must enroll each office as a separate VFC Program Provider Site
if that site will be offering immunization services using federally funded VFC vaccine.
NOTE: Deadline to complete the VFC re-enrollment is Thursday July 10, 2014. Providers, who do not complete all
required enrollment forms by Thursday July 10, 2014 in SCI PAS will jeopardize their ability to order VFC vaccine beyond Thursday July 24, 2014.
In order to become a VFC provider in South Carolina, providers can only see children from birth through 18 years of age, must be
licensed in the state to vaccinate, must have capacity to order, receive, and manage public vaccine, including proper vaccine
storage and temperature monitoring capacity and cannot be on the current List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) as
described by the United States Office of Inspector General.

SC State Vaccine Program Overview and Forms:
The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) offers the SC State Vaccine Program (State Program)
as a supplement to the Federal VFC Program. The purpose of the State program is to allow non-FQHC/non-RHC providers
to serve the “underinsured” child in their medical home. Participation in the State Vaccine Program also allows all
VFC enrolled providers to vaccinate certain insured-hardship children.
Providers must be enrolled in the Federal VFC Program as a prerequisite to enrollment in the State Vaccine Program.
Providers may opt to participate in the VFC Program only or both the VFC and State Vaccine Programs. A separate
enrollment agreement is required in SCI PAS for the VFC and State Vaccine programs to ensure accountability.
Enrollment documents for both vaccine programs may be submitted to the Immunization Division together for processing.
Please note the following: The SC State Vaccine Program offers all ACIP
recommended vaccines with the EXCEPTION of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine,
which is ONLY available through the Federal VFC Program.
