NYSACHO’s Immunization Action Plan project aims to increase and sustain immunization levels of all residents in New York State.
NYSACHO’s vaccine equity work includes training to increase immunizations in priority populations and multi-language communication resources for use on social media and with other outreach.
The Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program helps provide vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. This helps ensure that all children have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule. Vaccines available through the VFC Program are those recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). These vaccines protect babies, young children, and adolescents from these diseases.
The New York State Vaccines for Adults (VFA) Program provides vaccines at no cost to eligible adults. The vaccines are distributed to health care facilities that are enrolled as VFA providers.
