Immunize and Win A Prize

Immunize and Win a Prize
Vaccines for Children Kansas Immunization Registry


The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Immunization Program is continuing its successful ‘Immunize and Win a Prize,’ program. This statewide campaign provides prizes to families who have their children timely immunized. All Kansas children are eligible. However, to qualify, the children must receive their immunizations from a Vaccines For Children (VFC) provider.

The goal of the program is to help protect Kansas children from vaccine preventable diseases by successfully immunizing them by age 2.

According to the latest 2010 survey conduct by the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care, immunization rates for Health Connect Kansas, Healthwave-19  and Healthwave-21 children have increased 78%since the project began in 2003.

How it works:

Once the child completes his/her primary infant immunization series (should be by age 2), the family is entered into a drawing for a $300 payment to be applied to a family’s utility bill. One family will be drawn for each participating medical provider.

Who is eligible:

All Kansas children. However, the child must receive his/her immunizations from a Kansas Vaccines for Children Provider.

To find out if your medical provider participates in Vaccines for Children, just ask them:

Are you a Vaccine For Children provider?

Mortality rates for vaccine preventable diseases are highest in children less than 2 years old. Immunizations are a safe and effective way of giving children under age 2 the prize of a healthy start in life.
