Medicaid Program; Charges for Vaccine Administration Under the 
Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program

AGENCY: Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), HHS.

ACTION: Correction of notice with comment period.


SUMMARY: On October 3, l994, we issued in the Federal Register (59 FR 
50235) a notice with comment period that listed, by State, the interim 
regional maximum charges that providers may impose for the 
administration of pediatric vaccines to Federally vaccine-eligible 
children under the Pediatric Immunization Distribution Program, more 
commonly known as the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. This notice 
also specified the methodology that HCFA used to establish the maximum 
administration charges and options that States could use.
    In that notice, we inadvertently failed to specify the comment 
period closing date and the addresses for submittal of public comments. 
The omitted information follows:
