Childhood vaccine cost depends on whether or not a child is eligible for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. This is a Federal program that provides vaccines for children who may be unable to afford them otherwise. 

VFC-eligible children are those aged birth-18 years of age who meet at least one of the following:

  • Medicaid eligible
  • Uninsured
  • American Indian
  • Alaskan Native
  • Unaccompanied minors without proof of insurance presenting to a local health department Title X clinic
  • Underinsured
    • has private insurance but the coverage does not cover needed vaccines
    • has private insurance that caps vaccine coverage at a certain amount (and the child needs vaccines beyond the capped amount)

NOTE: Children with insurance that covers a portion of the vaccine cost are considered to be insured as are children whose vaccine cost would go toward the meeting of a deductible.

Please Note:  Eligibility for free vaccine for children through the VFC program changes several times per year.  For official documentation from the North Carolina Immunization Program, go to
