Available confirmation records are included in the VKP births database.  They are indicated by a C in the page column.  The following explanatory note appears in the Births Search preamble

Note: A search will bring up both Births and Confirmations. The letter C in the page column instead of a page number identifies the entry as a Confirmation that took place in the year noted with the film number. For Confirmations, the Event Place has the form "B- xxx, C or R place- yyy", where xxx stands for the Birth Place, and yyy stands for either the Confirmation Place or the Residence Place depending on which one is given in the confirmation record
