Trump Admin Reveals Plan To Get Free COVID Vaccines to Nursing Homes

Federal health officials on Friday unveiled a plan to get COVID-19 vaccines to nursing home residents free of charge, enlisting two national pharmacy chains to help.

Under the voluntary program, trained staff from CVS and Walgreens would deliver the vaccines to each nursing home and administer shots.

Assisted living facilities and residential group homes can also participate, and nursing home staffers can be vaccinated, too. Needles, syringes and other necessary equipment will be included.

The distribution program is contingent on the Food and Drug Administration authorizing a vaccine.

The idea is to give states an all-inclusive system for vaccinating their most vulnerable residents, according to Paul Mango, a senior policy adviser at the Department of Health and Human Services.
