Higgins Urges HHS, VA to Utilize Community Based Outpatient Clinics for Vaccine Distribution

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) sent a letter calling on the Department of Health & Human Services and the Department of Veterans Affairs to utilize VA Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) as COVID-19 vaccine distribution points for America's Veterans.

The letter reads, in part, 'HHS/VA can lead from the front and demonstrate fast, efficient, modern vaccine distribution. A solid CBOC plan could have every single American Veteran vaccinated by the end of March. Medical professionals tell me that a modern CBOC can easily handle 400 vaccinations each day. In 60 days, every American Veteran that wants a vaccine could have one.'
