Manchin Announces $1.3 Million From American Rescue Plan To Support COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts In West Virginia

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $1,315,728 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR). This funding is from the American Rescue Plan to support COVID-19 vaccination programs and address vaccine hesitancy in West Virginia.
“The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and continue to help West Virginia and the rest of the country begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. When vaccines first became available, West Virginia had among the highest rates of COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration in the nation. I am so proud of West Virginia’s efforts to provide vaccinations to every West Virginian that wants one. This funding from the American Rescue Plan will help increase vaccine confidence, support community outreach and encourage vaccinations across West Virginia. I will continue to support state and local efforts to encourage, administer and distribute COVID-19 vaccines to West Virginians to help keep ourselves and our loved ones safe,” said Senator Manchin.
