BRIDGE ACCESS PROGRAM (FOR UNINSURED)
COVID-19 vaccines are still available at no cost to most people living in the U.S. through their private health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid plans. However, there are 25-30 million adults without health insurance and additional adults whose insurance does not offer COVID-19 vaccines at no cost to them.
CDC’s Bridge Access Program provides no-cost COVID-19 vaccines to adults without health insurance and adults whose insurance does not cover all COVID-19 vaccine costs.
Who can get a no-cost COVID-19 vaccine through this program?
Adults 18 years and older without health insurance and adults with health insurance that does not provide zero-cost access to COVID-19 vaccines.
All CDC-recommended updated COVID-19 vaccines are included in the Bridge Access Program.
