Programs in the Division of Immunization

Vaccines for Children (VFC)
VFC provides most vaccines at no charge to enrolled public and private providers for eligible children. Purchasing vaccine through federal contracts at lower prices reduces vaccine cost as a barrier to vaccination and keeps children in their medical homes for comprehensive health care.

Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention (VPHBP)
In collaboration with local health departments and private providers, VPHBP identifies and provides services to hepatitis B surface antigen positive pregnant women and their infants, their household contacts, and sexual partners.

Virginia Adult Hepatitis B Immunization Initiative (VAHBII)
The Virginia Adult Hepatitis B Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Virginia Department of Healths Immunization Division, local health departments and community partners to identify adults at high risk for hepatitis B infection and to provide free hepatitis B vaccine to these individuals for the prevention of hepatitis B infection.

Disease Surveillance
Disease surveillance is a collaborative effort among private providers, schools, and state and local health departments to investigate occurrences of vaccine - preventable diseases (VPD). Timely reporting of VPD morbidity helps identify factors which may help prevent the spread of illness.

Virginia Immunization Information System (VIIS)
Virginia Immunization Information System, also known as VIIS, is Virginia’s statewide immunization registry for both the private and the public sectors.  It is a free, web-based system that consolidates vaccination records from multiple providers into one record.  VIIS is now available to health care professionals throughout the state.
