COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

What you need to know about the disease and how your health is our top priority.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and free for everyone

FEP covers all COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA, with no cost sharing for our members. You will pay no out-of-pocket costs or unexpected fees for the recommended doses when you receive the vaccines from Preferred providers.

When and where to get vaccinated

You can use the national VaccineFinder to check availability and search for vaccine locations in your area. You can also text your ZIP code to 438829 or call 1-800-232-0233 to find a location. The VaccineFinder creators have worked with clinics, pharmacies, and health departments to provide accurate and up-to-date information about vaccination services. Remember to make sure these locations are in-network to ensure you have no out-of-pocket costs when you receive your vaccines.

You can search FEP’s vaccine network to find a Preferred retail pharmacy near you.
