The CDC Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program has been providing no-cost COVID-19 testing for uninsured people that are symptomatic or exposed.

CDC has modified existing ICATT testing contracts with CVS Health, Walgreens, and eTrueNorth to include no-cost COVID-19 vaccines for the uninsured and underinsured. The CDC Bridge Access Program is providing updated COVID-19 vaccines to adults without health insurance and adults without full vaccine insurance coverage. No-cost COVID-19 vaccines through this program will be available until December 31, 2024. Many of the more than 19,000 sites that are offering no-cost vaccines are also offering no-cost COVID-19 testing services.

The ICATT program provides access to no-cost COVID-19 testing in U.S. communities to people that are uninsured and no-cost COVID-19 vaccines to people that are underinsured and uninsured. The program also supports surge testing in state and local jurisdictions. These surge sites provide expanded community testing in response to a sudden increase in COVID-19 transmission.

You can also visit your statetriballocal, or territorial health department website to look for the latest local information on testing and vaccines.
