Coronavirus Disease

Federal investments made in several COVID-19 relief packages fought for by Congressman Higgins, and passed by the House, ensured the accelerated delivery schedule of the COVID vaccine to communities across America. In December 2020, Congress passed a major relief package that included $8.75 billion to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) & states for distribution of vaccines.
