FEMA's COVID-19 Vaccine Update Apr


---------

---------

In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Messages
  • As of April 5, FEMA has provided more than $4.5 billion to 42 states, Washington D.C., five tribes and five territories for expenses related to COVID-19 vaccination at 100% federal cost share. These funds cover critical supplies, staffing, training and transportation needs that support increased vaccination efforts.
  • FEMA is committed to the equitable distribution of vaccines. Using data from CDC's social vulnerability index and population data from the Census, we work with our state partners to locate federal pilot Community Vaccination Centers where they will be able to do the most good for the most vulnerable populations and ensure everyone who wants a vaccine gets one.
  • FEMA is working to speed up vaccinations by supporting states as they open community vaccination centers across the country and working with its interagency partners to continue to provide support to additional sites daily. Each state determines its own vaccination priority groups and procedures. Community vaccination centers are led by states, but may be supported by the federal government, including FEMA.
  • Working with state governments, FEMA will open additional federal pilot community vaccination centers, which include federal support and supplemental vaccine allocation.
