Is the COVID-19 vaccine free? What if I don't have insurance?
Last Updated: 03/15/2021
No one will have to pay for the vaccine.
There are no out-of-pocket costs for the vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccines will be made available to individuals regardless of insurance coverage status. Individuals won't pay coinsurance, deductibles, or copayments.
Providers that administer vaccinations to patients without health insurance or whose insurance does not provide coverage of vaccination administration fees may not charge enrollees directly for any vaccine administration costs.
For detailed insurance information on COVID-19 vaccinations, refer to the Governor's press release.
