Coronavirus in Shasta County: Why doctors can’t charge you for your covid vaccines 05/10/2021

Published May 14, 2021

People who attend a mass vaccination clinic or go to their health care provider for COVID-19 shots can walk away without ever handing over a credit card.

That's because the federal government provides the vaccine "free of charge" to anyone living in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
