Baltimore City Health Department gets first supply of updated COVID shots for kids

October 18, 2023

The Baltimore City Health Department has received its first supply of the updated COVID-19 vaccine for children, and will offer it for free to those whose families don’t have health insurance or whose health insurance doesn’t cover the cost of the shot. The health department’s announcement Thursday came about two weeks after it received its first supply of the new monovalent vaccine for adults. It received both shipments from the federal government’s Bridge Access Program, which provides shots at no-cost to the 25 to 30 million adults in America without health insurance.
