The Vaccines for Children Program (VFC), established by an act of Congress in 1993, is a Federal funded program that helps families by providing no cost vaccines to doctors who serve eligible children 0 through 18 years of age. The VFC program is administered at the state level by the Immunization Branch, California Department of Public Health. Enrolled VFC providers are able to order vaccine through the state VFC Program which allows them to provide routine immunizations to eligible children with low or no out-of-pocket costs.

Under the direct supervision of the VFC Program Senior Field Representative, the Public Health Professional Worker performs a variety of duties (. e.g., filing, telephones, photocopying, scheduling, etc.) necessary to support the VFC Program Health Facilities Evaluators and the Senior Field Representative.
Please Note: This is an up to 43% limited appointment position of approximately 17 hours per week. The work hours are flexible. The VFC program is located in the Los Angeles, CA Field Office. This position will be housed in Los Angeles, CA.
The Institute for Global Health (IGH) was established in 1999 by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the University of California, Berkeley (UCB). It is a unique multidisciplinary and cross-institutional enterprise, formally set up within the Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics in UCSF’s School of Medicine. In July 2004, IGH became an Organized Research Unit (ORU) at UCSF. IGH, now the Prevention and Public Health Group (PPHG), seeks to improve health worldwide, especially in developing countries, through research that informs policy. The research is part of a broader mission to advance the welfare of vulnerable populations in California, the United States, and abroad, through education, advocacy, and research.
Immunizations are one of public health’s greatest achievements. Vaccines help prevent diseases and help keep Californians of all ages healthy. Making sure all kids get their routine shots on time gives them a healthy start in life. The Immunization program provides leadership and support to public and private sector efforts to protect the population against vaccine-preventable diseases.
