A. The state has implemented a program for the distribution of pediatric vaccines to program-registered providers for the immunization of federally vaccine-eligible children in accordance with § 1928 as indicated below.
1. The state program will provide each vaccine-eligible child with medically appropriate vaccines according to the schedule developed by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and without charge for the vaccines.
2. The state will outreach and encourage a variety of providers to participate in the program and to administer vaccines in multiple settings, e.g., private health care providers, providers that receive funds under Title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, health programs or facilities operated by Indian tribes, and maintain a list of program-registered providers.
3. With respect to any population of vaccine-eligible children a substantial portion of whose parents have limited ability to speak the English language, the state will identify program-registered providers who are able to communicate with this vaccine-eligible population in the language and cultural context which is most appropriate.
4. The state will instruct program-registered providers to determine eligibility in accordance with § 1928(b) and (h) of the Social Security Act.

6. The state will assure that no vaccine-eligible child is denied vaccines because of an inability to pay an administration fee.
7. Except as authorized under § 1915(b) of the Social Security Act or as permitted by the Secretary to prevent fraud or abuse, the state will not impose any additional qualifications or conditions, in addition to those indicated above, in order for a provider to qualify as a program-registered provider.
