KidsVaxGrant 2.0 awards over $16.7 million to pediatric vaccinators
2022By Physicians for a Healthy California KidsVaxGrant
Building on the success of KidsVaxGrant 1.0 earlier this year, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) invested an additional $16.7 million for KidsVaxGrant 2.0 and also expanded eligibility to support more physicians (758 provider sites) providing pediatric COVID-19 vaccines, not just those participating in the federal Vaccines for Children program.
Funds were allocated to encourage provider enrollment into the California COVID-19 Vaccine Program as well as expand clinic operating hours to offer vaccines more conveniently. Additionally, KidsVaxGrant 3.0 is in the pipeline to provide nearly $2.4 million in funding for Vaccines for Children providers.
