Biden pledges to make COVID vaccine free for Americans

United States President-elect Joe Biden vowed on Wednesday his administration would secure free vaccines for all Americans and an "equitable" vaccine distribution across the country.

"We're going to make sure vaccines are free of charge. And we’re going to ensure they are distributed equitably, so every person who wants a vaccine can get one — no matter the color of their skin or where they live," Biden tweeted.

Previously, Biden's advisory team member Celine Gounder claimed he is set to invoke the Defense Production Act after his inauguration "to make sure the personal protective equipment, the test capacity and the raw materials for the vaccines are produced in adequate supply."
