According to State law, all health insurance policies issued in Hawaii must provide health services, including routine immunizations, for children of the insured from birth through age five years. If you have no health insurance, have Medicaid or QUEST, your health insurance does NOT pay for childhood immunizations, or your child is American Indian or Alaska Native, your child may qualify to receive free/low cost shots through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program provides federally purchased vaccines for use by participating providers. These vaccines are administered to eligible children without vaccine cost to parents or providers. All routine childhood vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) are available through this program.
