Provider Portal: Delegation of Authority
A Delegation of Authority may be granted to VFC Providers only. The delegation extends VFC authority to vaccinate underinsured1 VFC- eligible
children from Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) to other VFC providers.
Extension of this VFC authority is intended to provide
underinsured VFC-eligible children with access to VFC vaccines that would otherwise be unavailable due to limited capacity or absence of an FQHC or RHC in a service area.
1. Underinsured: A child who has commercial (private) health insurance, but the coverage does not include vaccines; a child whose insurance covers only selected vaccines (VFC-eligible for non-covered vaccines only); or a child whose insurance caps vaccine coverage at a certain amount. Once that coverage amount is reached, the child is categorized as underinsured.
For a list of providers that have the authority to vaccinate VFC underinsured patients, visit the Providers by County page and look for VFC Underinsured under the Vaccine Programs column.
