President Biden Announced National Month of Action to Mobilize an All-of-America Sprint to Get More People Vaccinated by July 4th

On June 2, President Biden announced a National Month of Action to mobilize an all-of-America sprint to get 70% of U.S. adults at least one shot by July 4th. The President’s announcement includes several initiatives that will make it even easier to get vaccinated, including free child care for individuals getting vaccinated. Four of the nation’s largest child care providers will offer free child care to all parents and caregivers getting vaccinated or recovering from vaccination from now until July 4th.

From now until July 4th, KinderCare and Learning Care Group locations across the country will offer free, drop-in appointments to any parent or caregiver who needs support to get vaccinated or recover from vaccination, and more than 500 YMCAs in nearly every state will offer drop-in care during vaccination appointments. Bright Horizons will also provide free child care to support the vaccination of over 10 million workers employed at participating organizations.

The vaccine is free for everyone. To find a vaccination site near you text your zip code to 438829. You will receive a list of sites near you.  The reply will also ask you if you need free child care. If you reply with “care”, you will receive information on free child care near you.
