The Idaho Immunization Program (IIP) administers the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) program in Idaho. All vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) are supplied at no cost, through a combination of federal and state dollars, for Idaho children 0 through 18 years of age. Providers must be enrolled with the IIP to receive the vaccine.
The federal dollars, provided through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fund vaccines for children eligible for the VFC program. The State dollars, provided by the Idaho Immunization Assessment Board and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, fund vaccines for Idaho children who are not eligible for the VFC program.
