I wonder if it could be because of COVID and how they're strongly recommending everyone get one?
ETA: Were there funds given to the states for this? Asking because of what the pediatrician said...that the state is paying or they bill your insurance.
I was told that at the Publix that we shop at and several others in the area were giving the shot for free because they wanted to make sure that as many people as possible were going to get it. And yes I would assume that COVID was obviously a factor in this decision.
