Order Processing Updates:

There are currently no delays in the processing of federally-supplied vaccine requests. Received requests are promptly reviewed, approved and processed by the VFC Program’s Customer Service Center. As of Thursday, March 16, 2023, McKesson has resumed regular shipping of all VFC vaccine orders.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UPS has temporarily adjusted their signature guidelines for all shipments within the United States.  Signatures may not be required, meaning vaccine orders may be left unattended at provider offices or delivered.


Regular Vaccine Supply Information:

Until further notice, CDC has instituted temporary ordering controls to mitigate a potential supply constraint for Td vaccine. Once our allocation is exceeded for the month, Td vaccine will be unavailable to order until our allocation is refreshed the following month. Please remember to order and administer Tdap instead of Td whenever possible.
