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.

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.
