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
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 April 30, 2015. Providers, who do not complete and submit all required enrollment forms by Thursday April 30, 2015 in SCI PAS via the VFC Enrollment System will jeopardize their ability to order vaccines.
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 on the United States Office of Inspector General.

Supporting Documents and Forms

SC State Vaccine Program Overview and Forms:

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC 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 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.
