TVFC Best Practices

In order to participate in the TVFC Program, each signing clinician must agree to follow all program requirements.


Re-Enroll with TVFC

The TVFC Program requires that the TVFC Program Agreement and profile be updated annually as these forms are required for continued enrollment in the TVFC Program. Vaccine shipments may be interrupted for sites without current enrollment information on file. Provider re-enrollment must be completed by October 31, 2019


Update your TVFC Provider Information

Please notify your RE immediately if there is a new signing clinician or a change in staff that are assigned the duties as a primary or backup vaccine coordinator. New primary or backup vaccine coordinators are required to complete the CDC “You Call the Shots” Module 10 and 16 and Vaccine Education Online's TVFC Provider Policy Training module. The TVFC Program agreement and profile must be updated if the site’s patient population changes or when the signing clinician that signed the agreement form is no longer associated with the clinic.

Failure to properly update current clinic information may result in vaccine delays and possible negligent vaccine loss.


Ordering TVFC Vaccine

All vaccines and toxoids recommended by the ACIP are available from the TVFC Program to enrolled clinic sites. Clinics participating in the TVFC Program are required to offer all ACIP recommended vaccines to the eligible populations they serve, including influenza vaccine. For more information about TVFC Vaccine Ordering, please see Chapter 3, Section 2 of the TVFC and ASN Provider Manual.

Program Evaluation

By signing the TVFC Program Agreement, the signing clinician agrees to allow DSHS or DSHS quality assurance (QA) contractors to conduct site visits at least every other year at their site. For more information about program evaluation, please see Chapter 5 of the TVFC and ASN Provider Manual.
