HHS and our federal partners are working together with state, local, tribal and territorial governments, public health officials, health care providers, researchers, private sector organizations and the public to execute a whole-of-America response to the COVID-19 pandemic that protects the health and safety of the American people and moves the country forward safely.
The President’s National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan focuses on four key goals:
- Protect against and treat COVID-19
- Prepare for new variants
- Prevent economic and educational shutdowns
- Continue to lead the effort to vaccinate the world and save lives
America must maintain the tools – vaccines, boosters, treatments, tests, and masks – to protect against COVID-19 and dramatically decrease the risk of the most severe outcomes.
Vaccines are the best tool we have to prevent hospitalization and death.
We have a diverse medicine cabinet filled with more treatments now than at any point in the pandemic.
We have free testing sites at locations across the country.
Free N95 masks are available, and these critical tools can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
