Support for the California Department of Public Health

In April 2019, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) contracted with TMF for a pilot project to conduct 30 site visits with providers currently enrolled in the Vaccines for Adults (VFA) program. The sites were dually enrolled in the Vaccines for Children and the VFA programs — in Kern, Tulare and Los Angeles counties. During these site visits, TMF evaluated providers’ understanding of the VFA program, provided education about the program requirements, and assessed the storage and handling of VFA-only storage units to ensure vaccine viability. Following the visits, TMF provided feedback to CDPH including the implementation of the program-required survey tool, trends noted across multiple sites and issues identified as opportunities for technical assistance or follow-up.
