How much does the vaccine cost?

Nothing. Saltzer Health will bill a patient’s insurance for the administration of the vaccine to cover the costs of the medical professional and logistics of providing the vaccine. For uninsured patients, the cost is billed to the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund. The vaccine itself (the syringe contents) is funded by U.S. taxpayer dollars and will be provided at no cost to the person getting vaccinated.

Saltzer Health does not maintain a waiting list for the vaccine. Please check back for updates on available appointments.
