Division of Immunization
The mission of the West Virginia Division of Immunization Services (DIS) is to prevent and control
vaccine-preventable diseases among children, adolescents and adults of West Virginia.
DIS offers the Vaccines For Children "VFC" program that provides free vaccines to eligible children including those without health insurance coverage; all those who are enrolled in Medicaid; American Indians and Alaskan Natives; and those with health insurance plans that do not cover vaccines and go to Federally Qualified Health Clinics or Rural Health Centers. This federally funded program is available at more than 380 provider locations across the state including all 54 local health departments. Children who receive WVCHIP also receive their vaccines at any of the VFC provider offices for free.
