The Washington State Childhood Vaccine Program provides vaccine to all kids less than 19 years of age in Washington. The program uses a combination of federal and state funds to purchase vaccines. State and local public health providers enroll in the program, order vaccines, and meet program requirements.
Program Benefits - Providers don't have to buy expensive vaccines for your insured patients and wait to be reimbursed. There will be a single inventory of vaccine for all pediatric patients and orders are provided from one source. Practices don’t have to send patients elsewhere to get vaccinated.
Providers, patients, and communities all benefit from your participation in the State Childhood Vaccine Program. Your involvement in the program promotes continuity of care for your patients, maintains the patient-provider relationship, and ensures children will not miss opportunities for vaccination.
Provider Enrollment: Annual Provider Enrollment is now completed through the Washington State Immunization Information System (IIS). Check out the WA Department of Health (DOH) Provider Enrollment website for more information.

Vaccine Information Statements:
Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) are information sheets from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They explain to people who get vaccines, their parents, or their legal representatives, both the benefits and risks of a vaccine.
Federal law requires that VISs be given to patients before certain vaccinations are given. All providers of vaccines, both public and private sector, must give out Vaccine Information Sheets. The VISs are available in English, Russian and Spanish.
