From the Key Messages: "[1] As of March 4, FEMA has provided more than $4.13 billion to 38 states, Washington D.C., four tribes and five territories for expenses related to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccination at 100% federal cost share. These funds cover critical supplies, staffing, training and transportation needs that support increased vaccination efforts. [2] FEMA is committed to the equitable distribution of vaccines. We use data from CDC's [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] social vulnerability index, and work with our state partners to locate Community Vaccination Centers where they will be able to do the most good for the most vulnerable populations and ensure everyone who wants a vaccine gets one. [3] Since Jan. 20, the federal government has provided critical support in the form of personnel, supplies and/or funding to help establish or expand more than 500 community vaccination centers nationwide. Additionally, there are 70 mobile vaccination centers serving communities across the nation. [4] FEMA is working to speed up vaccinations by supporting states as they open community vaccine centers across the country. Vaccine allocations to states, tribes and territories continue to increase. The White House announced that starting next week vaccine allocations to states, tribes and territories will increase to 15.2 million."
