WASHINGTON — The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine is now available after receiving approval from the CDC and FDA last week.
This year, the COVID-19 shots will be commercialized, selling on the market between $120-$130. 92.3% of Americans, according to the CDC, are currently covered under insurance and will be expected to pay nothing.
Jennifer Tolbert, Director of State Health Reform at KFF, a non-profit focused on health issues, said that those with no insurance may face problems getting their COVID-19 shot.“The vaccine would not be free to them, absent a federal program to pay those costs,” Tolbert said. According to the CDC, 7.7% of Americans live without health insurance.
