There’s good news for Community Health Centers nationwide. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has committed to invest more than 6 billion dollars to expand COVID-19 vaccine services. The plan includes delivering preventive and primary health care services to people at high risk for COVID-19 and expanding health centers’ operational capacity during the pandemic and beyond.
