“The Biden Administration will end a program which provides free COVID-19 vaccines to uninsured adults. On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the CDC’s Bridge Access Program for COVID-19 Vaccines will end in August of 2024. The program has provided over 1.4 million free COVID-19 vaccines since September 2023. ‘After August, there may be a small amount of free vaccine available through health department immunization programs, but supply would be very limited,’ said CDC spokesperson David Daigle. ‘We don’t yet know if the manufacturers will have patient assistance programs.'” (05/16/24)
