WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Biden administration will nearly double Medicare’s reimbursement rates for the coronavirus vaccines, increasing it to $40 per single-shot or $80 for a two-dose vaccine, White House COVID-19 advisers said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters at a briefing, advisers also said the vast majority of people in the United States who are receiving the two-shot versions of the COVID-19 vaccine are getting their second dose within the recommended timeframe, with just 3% missing their second dose.
