Medicare, Medicaid to cover cost of first vaccines in US - report

The cost of coronavirus vaccines for Americans who receive Medicare or Medicaid will be covered under the health programs in question, Politico reported citing four people with knowledge of the matter.

The move comes as part of Washington's effort to roll out a plan that would ensure no US citizen has to pay to get vaccinated, President Donald Trump's administration is set to reveal in an announcement.

Going forward, Medicare and Medicaid would also cover vaccines that receive emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
