COVID-19 Vaccine Will Be Free for Those Who Can’t Afford It: White House

The coronavirus vaccine will be provided free of charge to Americans unable to afford it, according to the White House.

Any American who is “vulnerable, who cannot afford the vaccine and desires the vaccine, we will provide it for free,” a senior administration official told reporters during a press briefing Tuesday morning.

“We will work with them to get the vaccines distributed through the typical channels that they use” such as retail pharmacies and physician offices, the official said. “Our role in the federal government is to ensure anyone who is vulnerable, who cannot afford it and desires it gets it.”

The official added that while the Trump administration is also working with insurers, some commercial insurers have expressed “eagerness” to cover the vaccine without a co-pay and that most are already covering coronavirus-related services.
