Immunization records for children are frequently incomplete or unavailable. RIDE provides rapid retrieval via Web-based access to records. Using the registry eases the burdens of office staff by supporting reminder/recall notices for parents, replacing lost California Immunization Records (yellow cards) by printing a new copy with up-to-date information, and streamlining charting. For information or a demonstration, contact the Immunization Program at (209) 468-2292.
Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program
The VFC program, operated by the State Department
of Health Services, furnishes federally purchased pediatric vaccines
to health care providers at no cost to serve children birth-18
years whose parents cannot pay out of pocket for vaccines. Vaccines
are used for children covered by Medi-Cal or CHDP, children without
health insurance or whose insurance does not cover vaccine, and
American Indian or Alaskan native children. For more information,
