Additional vouchers will be available in the future through health departments in the following areas:

Individuals who meet eligibility criteria and are uninsured or considered underinsured will be able to claim one of 350,000 vouchers on a first-come, first-serve basis. The total value of the vouchers to be distributed by Walgreens is estimated at $10 million.
