HHS Launches Bridge Access Program to Safeguard Free COVID-19 Vaccination for Uninsured and Underinsured Adults
In April, HHS announced the ‘HHS Bridge Access Program For COVID-19 Vaccines’ to maintain broad access to COVID-19 vaccines for millions of uninsured Americans. Last week, the Bridge Access Program officially launched, providing continued free coverage for the estimated 25-30 million adults who would have otherwise lost access to affordable COVID-19 vaccines now that the distribution of vaccines has transitioned to the commercial market.
Public health communicators can share a communication toolkit for partners to expand access to no-cost COVID-19 vaccines and promote the Bridge Access Program. The toolkit includes frequently asked questions and communication resources. Learn more about the program from the CDC here.
