In response to the COVID-19 omicron variant, the Amputee Coalition Government Relations team would like to remind you of helpful resources to keep you and your loved ones safe.
- Free At Home Testing COVID-19 Testing Kits
The Biden-Harris Administration has created a website for Americans to order at home rapid C19 testing kits. This website launched on January 18, 2022 and is available to every home in the United States. Each home is eligible to order 4 free at home COVID-19 tests. To order the test kits please visit the following website: www.COVIDtests.gov.
- Free N95 Masks
The Biden-Harris Administration announced the availability of free N95 masks. N95 masks are the most protective respiratory masks available. The masks provide a close facial fit and efficient filtration of airborne illnesses like COVID–19. These N95 masks are available at your local pharmacies and community health centers across the country.
- Free Vaccinations
One of the best ways to combat COVID-19 is through receiving the vaccination. The federal government has compiled a list of participating pharmacies that will be disseminating vaccines in every state. To find out where to get the vaccine, please visit the following website: http://www.vaccinefinder.org.
