FEMA's COVID-19 Vaccine Update Mar


---------

---------

In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Messages

  • As of Feb. 23, FEMA has provided more than $3.81 billion to 35 states, Washington D.C., three tribes and five territories for expenses related to COVID-19 vaccination at 100% federal cost share. These funds cover critical supplies, staffing, training and transportation needs that support increased vaccination efforts.
  • FEMA is committed to the equitable distribution of vaccines and ensuring every person who wants a vaccine can get one. We're working with state, tribal and territorial partners and analyzing data from the CDC and U.S. Census Bureau to locate Community Vaccination Centers pilot program sites to reach underserved populations.
  • Earlier this month, two Community Vaccination Centers opened in California. This week, sites are opening in New York and Texas. Additional pilot sites are opening soon, including four sites in Florida, four in New York and one in Philadelphia.
  • Even as FEMA is focused on supporting vaccination distribution efforts, the agency is supporting multiple disasters, including the disaster declaration for Texas . Since the Feb. 19 declaration, we've awarded more than $5.7 million dollars to survivors. This assistance can help with temporary housing and home repairs and other resources to help eligible individuals and business owners start the recovery process.

In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Messages

  • At the President's direction, FEMA has increased its support to states, tribes and territories for vaccination centers. FEMA has already obligated more than $3.63 billion to states, tribes and territories, and Washington, D.C. for community vaccination centers. As the number of states with obligations increases, we will work alongside other federal agencies to provide federal support for critical staffing, supplies and other shortfalls that can help get more people vaccinated.
  • Even as FEMA is focused on supporting vaccination distribution efforts, the agency is supporting multiple disasters, including the disaster declaration for Texas and recent emergency declarations for Louisiana and Oklahoma .

Federal Funding to Accelerate Vaccine Efforts

  • Providing funding to states, tribes and territories is an Administration priority. After a request is submitted, reviewed and validated, FEMA can expedite reimbursement for eligible emergency work projects to ensure resources are available to support vaccine distribution and administration.

FEMA Supports COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Feb

In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Message

  • FEMA continues to support vaccine distribution efforts, including the opening of the first Community Vaccination Center in California, while responding to the recent winter storms and urging individuals and families to prepare for additional winter weather.

    Acting FEMA Administrator Bob Fenton is attending the opening of the first Community Vaccination Center in California today -- at California State University in Los Angeles. The center is focusing on vaccinating underserved and historically marginalized communities. Another pilot Community Vaccination Center is also opening today in Oakland, California. Both centers are designed to administer up to 6,000 vaccines a day. FEMA is providing resources, operational and federal staffing support.

    FEMA has now obligated more than $3.38 billion to states, tribes and territories, and Washington, D.C., for community vaccination centers. As the number of states with obligations increases, we will work alongside other federal agencies to provide federal support for critical staffing, supplies and other shortfalls that can help get more people vaccinated.
