Bridge Access Program
On April 18, 2023, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the HHS Bridge Access Program (BAP) for COVID-19 Vaccines and Treatments. The BAP is a temporary measure connected to the commercialization of COVID-19 vaccines and treatment. It was created to prevent loss of access to free COVID-19 vaccines and treatment for uninsured and underinsured aged 19 years and older. The program began September 2023 and will end on December 31, 2024. More detailed information can be found at the CDC’s Bridge Access Program webpage.
