MDH worked with all Planned Parenthood clinics statewide to enroll them in the MnVFC program during 2000. These clinics are currently receiving hepatitis B vaccine for their MnVFC eligible patients. MnVFC eligibility criteria include:

  • children and adults enrolled in Minnesota Medical Assistance (MA), General Assistance Medical Care (GAMC), or MinnesotaCare;
  • children who do not have health insurance;
  • children who are American Indian or Alaskan Native;
  • children who have health insurance that does not cover vaccine;
  • children who have health insurance that partially covers vaccine (i.e., immunizations are subject to a co-pay) or have a deductible not yet met

This is a new initiative for Planned Parenthood clinics who previously did not provide immunizations.
