State, tribal, territorial, and local immunization programs and health departments have received $6 billion since January 2021 to support COVID-19 vaccination as part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act. In support of equitable vaccine uptake in communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases provides multiple resources to support jurisdictions and community-based organizations with COVID-19 vaccination efforts.
