ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS:

If you don’t have insurance or your insurance isn’t paying for GARDASIL, you may qualify for one of two programs:

  • VACCINES FOR CHILDREN (VFC) PROGRAM
  • MERCK VACCINE PATIENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

GARDASIL is part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, a federally funded program for kids who, because of cost, would probably not be vaccinated otherwise.

VFC gives free vaccines (shots) to children 18 years old or younger who:

  • Can get Medicaid
  • Do not have health insurance
  • Are Native American or Alaskan Native or
  • Have health insurance that does not fully cover shots. These children must go to a special health clinic to get the free shots.

Ask your doctor or health care professional if he or she is part of VFC. If he or she is not, you may be able to take your child to one of the following health clinics to get VFC vaccines:

  • Public health clinic (local health department)
  • Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC)
  • Rural Health Clinic (RHC)

CONTACT YOUR STATE’S VFC COORDINATOR HERE OR CALL 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636) AND ASK WHERE YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR CHILD FOR GARDASIL.

GARDASIL is part of the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program (MVPAP), funded by Merck, for adults age 19 or older who cannot afford vaccines.

This private and confidential program provides vaccines free of charge to eligible adults, primarily the uninsured who, without our assistance, could not afford needed vaccines. MVPAP offers free adult vaccines (shots) to people who:

  • Are 19 years old or older
  • Do not have health insurance, or
  • Cannot afford to pay for the vaccines
