Immunization-friendly Birthing Hospital Honor Roll

CDPH is honoring California birthing and neonatal hospitals enrolled in VFC and administering nirsevimab doses to VFC-eligible children. See the list of hospitals in our honor roll.

VFC Program Benefits for Birthing Hospitals

We strongly encourage birthing hospitals, acute care hospitals, and others providing care to neonatal patients to join the VFC Program to ensure newborns are immunized against RSV and Hepatitis B; enrolled birthing hospitals will only be required to administer RSV and Hep B immunizations. By enrolling, birthing hospitals will benefit by:

  • Receiving RSV (nirsevimab) and Hepatitis B immunizations at no cost,
  • Protecting your infant patients with recommended vaccines before they leave the hospital,
  • Getting ongoing educational and quality assurance support, and
  • Preventing RSV and Hep B among vulnerable communities in California.

Did you know? 

  • Birthing institutions can participate in the VFC Program, regardless of whether they accept Medi-Cal!
  • Birthing institutions are not required to carry all ACIP-recommended vaccines to participate in VFC. You may choose to only order RSV and Hepatitis B immunizations for newborns.
  • VFC and commercial vaccines can be stored in the same storage unit.
