Become an Adult Safety Net Provider
How You Can Help
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.
Who Can Be an ASN Provider
There are eligibility and requirements to becoming an ASN provider. Provider types that may enroll in the ASN Program include, but may not be limited to, clinics that are formally recognized as one of the following:
