The state of Wyoming currently operates two pediatric vaccine programs, the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program and the Wyoming Vaccinates Important People (WyVIP) Program.
VACCINES FOR CHILDREN (VFC) PROGRAM
“The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay (CDC, 2012).”
*VFC-eligible children are those who age 18 and under and are eligible for Medicaid, uninsured, American Indian/Alaska Native, or underinsured at a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Rural Health Clinic (RHC), or any other provider with delegated authority.

WYOMING VACCINATES IMPORTANT PEOPLE (WYVIP) PROGRAM
The WyVIP program was created after the enactment of the Childhood Immunization Act (2006) to provide an appropriation for vaccine for children who are not VFC-eligible.
Children who are Wyoming residents, 18 years and under, and do not qualify for VFC vaccine are eligible for WyVIP vaccine. Influenza vaccine, Hepatitis A, meningococcal, and HPV are NOT available through the WyVIP Program.
