The Secretary has long championed the Affordable Care Act which has brought health care to millions of Americans including Coloradans living with pre-existing conditions. Secretary Becerra, the Biden Administration, and my administration will continue to meet people in their communities to ensure this free, quick, and safe vaccine gets into arms.”
