Who Are We?

We are the Philadelphia Immunization Program. We keep Philadelphia healthy by averting vaccine-preventable diseases and increasing immunization coverage across the city. Part of the Philadelphia Department of the Public Health Division of Disease Control, we are federally-funded to oversee the government purchase and local distribution of vaccines. By monitoring the use of these vaccines, we help providers maintain their vaccination inventory.

The Programs We Manage…


PhilaVax IIS

Philadelphia's Immunization Information System, or PhilaVax IIS, is a secure system that allows health care providers to access patient immunization records and use every opportunity to vaccine patients.


The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program is a vaccine supply program that allows enrolled health care providers to give free immunizations to eligible children.


The Vaccines for Adults at Risk (VFAAR) Program makes free vaccine available to select providers serving adults at high-risk for vaccine preventable diseases.


Flu Clinics

The Philadelphia Immunization Program coordinates a citywide flu campaign for adults who do not have health insurance or an alternative source for medical care each year.



Our Community Based Outreach team keeps children, their families, and their communities healthy by ensuring compliance with Philadelphia’s immunization requirements.

Perinatal Hep B

Our Perinatal Hepatitis B Program works with families and physicians to identify cases and ensure that at-risk children will not be infected with Hepatitis B virus (HBV).
