Engaging Federally Qualified Health Centers

To ensure our nation’s underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by COVID-19 are equitably vaccinated against COVID-19, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are launching a program to directly allocate a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine to select HRSA-funded health centers starting the week of February 15, 2021.

This will be an incremental effort as more vaccine becomes available and will be carried out in coordination with the jurisdictions and health centers. This program complements existing jurisdictional efforts to ensure equitable and effective access by providing an additional vaccine supply directly to targeted HRSA-funded health centers that specialize in caring for disproportionately affected populations.
