Children’s Services Handbook : Appendix B: Immunizations : 3.1 Immunizations Overview : 3.1.2 TVFC Versus Non-TVFC Vaccines/Toxoids

3.1.2
When single antigen vaccines/toxoids or comparable antigen vaccines/toxoids are available for distribution through the Texas Vaccines for Children (TVFC) Program, but the provider chooses to use a different Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)-recommended product, the vaccine/toxoid will not be reimbursed; however, the administration fee will be considered.
Note:
All administered vaccines/toxoids must be reported to DSHS. DSHS submits all vaccines/toxoids reported with consent to a centralized immunization registry, known as ImmTrac.
