With bipartisan support for increasing the number of Americans vaccinated, there will likely be various private and public partnerships forged to encourage citizens to get inoculated. The need is significant in rural areas, where vaccination numbers have been low.
The efforts to increase vaccination accessibility is a key part of the stimulus package, said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
“People have lost faith government can do good for them. Now, as vaccines become more available and other changes take place, people are going to see that government actually is making their lives better — which is how Americans used to think of it, and we’ve gotten away from it.”
The White House said Biden would sign the bill Friday.
