Resource Summary: In response to concerns of access barriers some immigrants are facing regarding documentation requests prior to receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and individuals inappropriately being sent bills for COVID-19 vaccine fees, HRSA developed two fact sheets to help both patients and providers better understand their rights and responsibilities regarding access to COVID-19 vaccines.
