Program Overviews

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) offers several programs aimed at enriching the lives of Texans, such as low-cost vaccines, a digital immunization registry and online tools for vaccine ordering. Registration requirements for each program vary depending on the provider and their staff.

Adult Safety Net

The Adult Safety Net (ASN) program aims to increase access to vaccination services in Texas for uninsured adults. This increases immunization coverage levels and improves the health of Texans. Like infants and children, adults are also at risk for contracting vaccine-preventable diseases. Besides becoming severely ill, infected adults may spread these diseases to infants who are too young to be vaccinated. The solution is to vaccinate our adult population to prevent infection.

Immunization Information Services (ImmTrac2)

Whether you’re a health care provider, school nurse, or administrator, ImmTrac2 makes a seemingly impossible task easy. 

At your fingertips, you can access immunization records and explore features like: 

  • History and forecasting 
  • Easy password updates 
  • Free and secure features 
  • Enhanced recall and reminder functionality 
  • Specific reporting
  • Improved EMR Data Exchange 

Texas Vaccines for Children

By enrolling in Texas Vaccines for Children (TVFC), providers can offer numerous benefits to Texas families. One crucial benefit is removing barriers to immunizations. For instance, you won't need to refer uninsured children to public health centers for vaccines. TVFC covers vaccine costs, keeping children in their "medical home," benefiting both provider and client. Eligible families currently paying for vaccinations may qualify for TVFC.


Vaccine Allocation and Ordering System

TVFC/ASN providers will use the Vaccine Allocation and Ordering System (VAOS) to acknowledge vaccines allocated to them, confirm receipt of vaccine shipments, and report vaccine administration and waste.
