The latest round of COVID-19 vaccines is rolling out.

Some people are already running into problems after being charged to get a vaccine that was free last year, due to a computing problem. Many insurance billing software systems haven't been updated to cover the newest COVID-19 vaccine. 

By law, insurance companies must cover the COVID-19 vaccine if you get it in-network.

KMBC talked to Dr. Sarah Boyd, an infectious disease physician at Saint Luke's Health System, about why people should get the new vaccine this fall.
