VTrckS Benefits

The Vaccine Tracking System, or VTrckS, is an online application that allows CDC awardees (i.e., state, city, and territorial immunization programs that receive federal funding for vaccine purchases) to efficiently order and manage publicly-funded vaccines. VTrckS replaces several CDC legacy systems: the Vaccine Management System (VACMAN), the Vaccine Ordering and Forecasting Application (VOFA), and the National Immunization Program Vaccine System (NIPVAC), with a modern SAP-based system that combines vaccine ordering, forecasting, budget management, and contract management. There are three groups of VTrckS users: Awardees, Providers (health care providers that administer vaccines as part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program), and the CDC.


VTrckS Benefits for Awardees

With VTrckS, awardees can:

  • Monitor vaccine orders from request to delivery
  • Process and approve vaccine requests online
  • Manage provider information and create customized vaccine lists (formularies)
  • Link an immunization information system (IIS) with VTrckS if the IIS already supports providers in ordering vaccine and tracking inventory
  • Receive timely information about vaccine order shipments and deliveries
  • Access online self-help and other support services
  • Manage Spending Plans

VTrckS Benefits for Providers

With VTrckS, providers can:

  • Place vaccine requests either directly in VTrckS or via the awardee’s IIS.
  • Providers that access VTrckS directly can:
    • Place vaccine requests and returns requests online
    • Track vaccine requests from the time they are placed until vaccines are delivered
    • Submit accountability data
    • Access online self-help and other support services
