|How is VVPP’s Assessment Rate Determined?|
VVPP receives from Vermont the estimated vaccine costs for non-federally paid (i.e., VFC) vaccines and allocates those costs across the estimated number of non-VFC eligible Vermont resident children and adults. VVPP computes a per child covered life per month assessment rate for each fiscal year. This computation considers all of VVPP’s costs to maintain Vermont’s Immunization Program, including reserves as allowed by statute, to minimize the risk of having to make a supplemental assessment. Any excess funds are carried forward to reduce next year’s assessment.
