US govt outlines plan to provide free COVID-19 vaccines

The United States government outlined a plan on Wednesday to provide free COVID-19 vaccines to all Americans who want them.

The US Defense Department and federal health agencies compiled a report to Congress and a "playbook" for states in which they laid out the proposal to gradually start a free vaccination campaign in January, or even earlier if possible, and eventually offer the vaccine at no charge to all US citizens.

The report added that more than one vaccine could be available but stressed most of these would require people getting a double-dose of the vaccine from the same manufacturer.
