(RightWing.org) – It’s no secret that prescription medications and vaccinations are expensive in the US. So, as scientists work to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, it makes sense the most vulnerable people in the country might be afraid they can’t afford it. President Donald Trump’s administration is assuring Americans that won’t be a problem.
During a call with reporters on June 16, a senior Trump Administration official said any COVID-19 vaccination developed will be free to the “vulnerable” and those “who cannot afford” it. President Trump launched “Operation Warp Speed” earlier this year and awarded scientists incentives to create a coronavirus vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccine doses developed with taxpayer money would be given to the U.S. government and then distributed—either for free to vulnerable populations or through private insurance, administration officials claim.https://t.co/i80kHMF6ul

Giving the medicine to people who need it, but can’t pay for it, at no cost is a bold move. With it, the president is making sure all Americans are given the opportunity to take it and stay safe. It’s a kind and thoughtful decision that proves he’s an incredible leader.
