The COVID-19 Vaccine is Approved – and it’s Covered at No Additional Cost to You

Spring Issue

Pharmaceutical vials labeled COVID-19 VACCINE

Since the start of the pandemic, more than 500,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. But hope—and protection—is on the way. FDA-authorized vaccines are now available, and they’re being distributed to frontline healthcare workers and high-risk populations. Over time, the vaccines will become more widely available to the whole population.

When will the vaccine become available to you?

It’s up to individual states to develop their own prioritization and rollout plans. As you wait your turn to be vaccinated, we encourage you to be patient and to follow the news from your state. Once you’ve secured an appointment, please bring your red, white and blue Medicare card or Medicare Number to your visit so your healthcare provider or pharmacy can bill Medicare.
