1. The worker can view an Immunization Schedule showing at what ages vaccinations are due on the Family Support Services Division (FSSD) Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) web page under TANF Web Links.
2. When it is determined that a child does not have the required immunizations or is not current, the worker makes a referral to the primary care provider or to the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH). OSDH has outreach workers to assist families and can provide immunizations without charge.
3. Upon certification, entries must be made on the Household tab on Family Assistance/Client Services (FACS), showing immunization status of each child included in the cash assistance. All children coded "P" for immunization pending or "N" for immunization not current are shown on County Worker Activity (CWA) report 62, until the worker changes the immunization code to "Y" for immunization current or "G" for good cause. The worker must complete a review at six month intervals when required immunizations are pending per OAC 340:65-3-8.
4. If compliance occurs after deadline, the worker issues a supplement for the next month. Refer to OAC 340:10-3-57(g) for more information regarding benefit reductions due to program violations.
