Wyoming currently has several Public Vaccine Programs available to assist in protecting children and adults from vaccine-preventable diseases. The following Programs are available at participating providers and are available at little to no cost for eligible patients.
Learn more about each Program below including eligibility.
Birth through Age 18
Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program
The VFC program is a federally funded vaccine program. VFC-eligible children are those who are 18 years of age and younger and are at least one of the following:
- Eligible for Medicaid
- Uninsured (no insurance)
- American Indian or Alaska Native
- 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 is a state-funded vaccine program that provides affordable vaccine to 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.
Adults 19+ Years of Age
Vaccines for Uninsured Adults (VUA) Program
The Vaccines for Uninsured Adults (VUA) Program is a federally-funded adult vaccine program that was established in 2012. The VUA Program is currently available only at participating Public Health Nursing (PHN) Offices as well as a few private facilities.
Vaccines provided through the VUA Program can only be administered to Wyoming residents, 19 and older, who are uninsured or underinsured.*
*Underinsured refers to patients who have health insurance, including Medicaid or Medicare that does NOT cover the vaccines needed, or the cap for vaccines has been met.
Adult Hepatitis Vaccine (AHV) Program
The Adult Hepatitis Vaccine (AHV) Program is a state-funded vaccine program that allows Wyoming residents to receive Hepatitis A and B immunizations at no cost from participating public and private healthcare providers.
All Adults in Wyoming, aged 19 and older, may receive Hepatitis A and B immunizations through state funding, regardless of income or insurance status. Priority is given to individuals with reported risk factor behaviors as defined in the most current Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B Vaccine Information Statements (VIS).
