Vaccines for Adults (VFA) Program

Contact the Immunization Section

Adults are also at risk for contracting vaccine-preventable diseases. To protect vulnerable populations from becoming infected, the Vaccine for Adult Program (VFA) in Florida provides vaccines to our adult population to prevent infection with one of these potentially devastating diseases.

To be eligible to receive VFA vaccine, one must be an:

  • Uninsured adult aged 19 years and older
  • Underinsured adult aged 19 years and older (i.e., health insurance does not cover the cost of the vaccine to be administered)

These vaccines are distributed to health care facilities such as county health departments and Federally Qualified Health Centers.
