HHS Announces Funding to Support Testing and Vaccinations

More than $22 billion going to state, local, and tribal communities for Covid testing and vaccine distribution.

The Department of Health and Human Services announced it will be providing over $22 billion in funding through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for state, local, and territorial communities under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act.

“On top of the substantial support we’ve already provided, the funding bill signed by President Trump in December has billions of dollars in new funding for COVID-19 testing and vaccinations,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “We’re making these billions in new funds available to states as quickly as possible to support our combined efforts to end the pandemic.”

“This funding is another timely investment that will strengthen our nation’s efforts to stop the COVID-19 pandemic in America,” said CDC Director Robert Redfield. “Particularly now, it is crucial that states and communities have the resources they need to conduct testing, and to distribute and administer safe, high-quality COVID-19 vaccines safely and equitably.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Azar as he leads the HHS department
  • For Dr. Redfield as he oversees the disbursement of funding from the CDC.
  • For an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
