Most community members can still get a COVID-19 vaccine for free.
- For people with health insurance, most plans will cover the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost from local pharmacies. Local health care providers may also have the updated vaccine.
- For people who don’t have health insurance, or who have health plans that do not cover the cost of vaccines, they can get a free vaccine through a provider that offers the Bridge Access Program for ages 18 – 64, or the Vaccines for Children program for ages 17 and under.
