If a child isn’t covered by health insurance but the parent plans to get insurance, is the child eligible for VFC vaccine?

If the child has no health insurance on the day he or she presents at a medical practice or health department for immunization, the child is VFC eligible because he or she is uninsured. A child must be screened for VFC eligibility at each visit, even though the eligibility form needs to be updated only when the child’s eligibility status changes.
