Q: Are there ARRA funds to support child immunization efforts?
Yes, ARRA allocates $300 million for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Section 317 Immunization Grants Program. This program helps purchase vaccines and provide vaccine services to underinsured children who are not served by other programs. This is a discretionary grant program available to all states, six cities and the territories. More information can be found on the CDC’s website.
