About the Program
Currently, there are significant numbers of adults in Texas who are not immunized for recommended vaccinations, meaning that they are at an increased risk of developing vaccine-preventable diseases. Your participation in the ASN Program would help to address this important public health issue by providing access to vaccines for uninsured adults. Also, since ASN Program vaccines are of no cost to your facility, and you may charge an administration fee of up to $25 per vaccine, joining the ASN Program is both beneficial to your business, as well as to the health of Texans.
Currently, providers at the following types of public facilities are eligible to enroll in the ASN Program:
- DSHS Health Service Region Offices
- Local Health Departments
- Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC)
- Rural Health Clinics (RHC)
- HIV Clinics
- STD Clinics
- Family Planning Clinics
- Substance Abuse Clinics (Opioid Replacement Clinics)
If you are not currently enrolled in the Texas Vaccines for Children (TVFC) Program, please contact the Adult and Adolescent Immunization coordinator for your health service region.
