The program allows for families who are on Husky or don’t have insurance to get vaccines for free or at a low cost. For more information about this program, click here.
CVP also offers the Tdap vaccine for $20 to adults of newborns or caregivers of newborns including grandparents.

Connecticut Immunization Action Plan (IAP) Program
The CT IAP is a statewide program funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) whose purpose is to raise immunization rates of infants through pre-school children. There are currently 9 IAP sites in CT, one of which is at NVHD. NVHD has an Immunization Action Plan (IAP) Coordinator who ensures the IAP objectives are met for residents and providers in Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Naugatuck, Seymour, Shelton, Stratford, Monroe, Trumbull & Oxford:
- Conducting outreach and tracking using our statewide immunization registry, CT WIZ. CT WIZ is a web-based database that maintains complete, accurate, and secure immunization records of all CT children.

- Conducting assessment in pediatric practices to improve vaccine delivery.
