The purpose of this letter is to announce the completion of our transition to VOMS (Vaccine Ordering Management System). We wish to thank all Vaccines for Children (VFC) providers for their patience, cooperation, and dedication during the transition. Virtually 100% of all VFC providers have now successfully transmitted their vaccine orders through VOMS.

CDC and the vaccine manufacturer do not recommend transporting varicella-containing vaccines. If varicella-containing vaccines must be transported, CDC recommends transport with a portable freezer unit that maintains the temperature between -58°F and +5°F (-50°C and -15°C). Portable freezers may be available for rent in some places.
