**IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATE FOR CAREGIVERS**
Effective March 1, 2022, caregiver applicants are required to obtain a fingerprint based criminal history record check. Section 3.3.3 of the rules allows the Board to temporarily register caregiver pending the completion of a criminal history check, provided the applicant is a spouse, domestic partner, child, legal guardian, parent, sibling, grandparent, or grandchild of the Patient.
To meet this requirement, the caregiver must make and appointment with one of the 15 identification centers in Vermont. A list of those identification centers along with guidance on the fingerprinting process can be found here 2019 Identification Centers.pdf (vermont.gov)
The Medical Cannabis Program staff will provide you with an authorization form to be taken to the fingerprint identification center. Please email ccb.med@vermont,gov to request your form. There is a processing fee of $30, to be paid at the identification center upon service.
Once your fingerprints are recorded with the identification center, those records are sent to the Vermont Crime Information Center (VCIC) directly for processing. Medical program staff will receive notification from VCIC when the results are ready.
