Since 1990, Washington State has maintained a universal childhood vaccine program, providing vaccines to all children less than 19 years regardless of income. Washington’s universal status has meant that whatever vaccines are provided for VFC-eligible children, the state also provides to non-VFC eligible children. No child can be denied state-supplied vaccine because of their inability to pay an administration or office visit fee and no child can be charged for state-supplied vaccine.
