The Oregon Immunization Program (OIP) is committed to ensuring and increasing access to vaccines for people of all ages. OIP has a Vaccine Access Program that allows providers to enroll to receive state-supplied vaccine to serve their entire population. All vaccine is supplied at no cost, and providers code each dose of vaccine given to show the eligibility for that vaccine and that patient. Eligibility codes in ALERT IIS are used to send quarterly bills for patients who are insured, and the participating clinics do not need to purchase a separate stock of private vaccine for these patients.
In order to receive vaccines from the OIP, a provider must comply with the same requirements and training for providers enrolled in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. These requirements include following all OIP storage and handling requirements:
Clinics enrolled in the VAP program will receive a site visit within the first six months of enrolling and then every 18-24 months after that. These visits are a time to check how the clinic is complying with the program requirements. To assess how prepared your clinic is for a site visit, fill out the
Preparing for a VFC/VAP Site Visit Checklist . Clinics may also receive an unannounced visit to check vaccine storage and handling.
