TVFC Best Practices

In order to participate in the TVFC program, each signing clinician must agree to follow all program requirements.

Re-Enroll with TVFC

The TVFC program requires that the TVFC Program Agreement and profile be updated annually as these forms are required for continued enrollment in the TVFC Program. Vaccine shipments may be interrupted for sites without current enrollment information on file. Provider re-enrollment must be completed by the posted deadline. 

Update your TVFC Provider Information

Please notify your RE immediately if there is a new signing clinician, new prescribing provider, change in shipping information, change in facility name, patient population data change, or a change in staff that are assigned the duties as a primary or backup vaccine coordinator. New primary or backup vaccine coordinators are required to complete the CDC “You Call the Shots” Modules 10 and 16, the most current Vaccine Education Online TVFC Provider Policy Training module, and the Vaccine Allocation and Ordering System (VAOS)Training.

Failure to properly update current clinic information may result in vaccine delays and possible negligent vaccine loss.

Ordering TVFC Vaccine

All vaccines and toxoids recommended by the Advisory Committee and Immunization Practices (ACIP) are available from the TVFC Program to enrolled clinic sites. Clinics participating in the TVFC program are required to offer all ACIP-recommended vaccines, including the influenza vaccine, to the eligible populations they serve. For more information about TVFC Vaccine Ordering, please see Chapter 3, Section 2 of the TVFC and ASN Provider Manual and review the TVFC/ASN Formulary for available TVFC Vaccines.
