Governors Association Appeals to Biden Administration Regarding Vaccine Distribution

The Executive Committee of the National Governors Association (NGA) sent a Feb. 15, 2021 letter to the Biden administration regarding vaccine distribution. This letter specifically mentions federal vaccine distribution efforts to FQHCs and long-term care facilities and pharmacies and calls for more coordination with state governments. The governors state that without this coordination, these direct distribution programs may be redundant and inefficient. The goal of the letter was to seek more clarity from the Administration about the vaccine rollout among all entities. Members of the NGA are complimentary of Community Health Centers and rely on FQHCs for the quality care we provide.
