San Diego Immunization Coalition

The San Diego Immunization Coalition (SDIC) is a community coalition that collaborates with many immunization partners throughout San Diego County. The mission of SDIC is to increase immunization rates and improve the health of the residents of San Diego County by raising awareness and providing education about vaccine-preventable diseases.

Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program 

The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program helps families by providing vaccines at no cost to providers who serve eligible children from birth through 18 years of age. The VFC Program has earned high marks from California doctors for making it easy to provide high-quality care to their patients.

CDC contracts with vaccine manufacturers to buy vaccines at reduced rates. Enrolled providers order federally funded vaccines through their state VFC Program and receive routine vaccines (including influenza) at no cost.

For providers that want to enroll as a VFC provider, visit the VFC Becoming a VFC Provider webpage. 

Immunization Recommendations

Current immunization recommendations are provided by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Below are resources to determine eligibility for immunization with related screening questionnaires and immunization schedules.
