Can VFC-eligible children who travel to regions where hepatitis A virus (HAV) is endemic receive HepA vaccine under the VFC program?

Yes. ACIP recommends that all children age 1 year through 18 years should be vaccinated against hepatitis A. VFC HepA vaccine may be administered to any eligible child, including those recommended for vaccination at 6 through 11 months of age as a result of travel to an HAV-endemic area.
