We Can Do This

Four of the nation’s largest child care providers are offering free child care to all parents and caregivers getting vaccinated or recovering from vaccination from now until Sunday, July 4.

  • KinderCare and Learning Care Group locations across the country will offer free, drop-in appointments to any parent or caregiver who needs support to get vaccinated or recover from vaccination.
  • More than 500 YMCAs in nearly every state will offer drop-in care during vaccination appointments.
  • Bright Horizons will provide free child care for 10 million workers employed at participating organizations to get their vaccination or recover from the side effects. 
  • HHS is encouraging all states to use the American Rescue Plan’s child care funding to offer local or home-based child care providers the financial flexibility they need to join this effort and support vaccination.

Here are flyers you can use to inform your patients about this incentive: English and Spanish

Patients can visit Vaccines.gov's incentives website to find out how to engage these services. Note that website also lists other vaccination incentives.

As a reminder, vaccines are FREE and available to everyone, regardless of immigration or insurance status.
