Americans Won’t ‘Pay a Dime’ for COVID-19 Vaccine: HHS Official

Paul Mango, deputy chief of staff for the Department of Health and Human Services, said Wednesday no American will have to pay to get the coronavirus vaccine.

“In terms of principle and an aspiration, it’ll be that no American has to pay a single dime out of pocket to get a vaccine,” Mango said, CNN reported. “And we’re getting close to that aspiration right now.”

Mango made his comments as the University of Oxford announced the AstraZeneca vaccine trial, halted due to an unexplained illness in a volunteer, will resume, though the university didn’t specify when, CNN reported. The trial will resume only in the United Kingdom for now.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is in the late stage of phase three in the U.S., along with efforts of Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTec. CNN reported all three companies receive federal funding for their programs.
