Join us for a webinar to discuss the latest CDC recommendations for pneumonia, influenza, and COVID vaccines for older adults and the important role that aging services providers can play in education and outreach.
Presenters will explain current barriers to vaccine access for older adults, including gaps in Medicare coverage.
Learn about a community-based organization’s pneumonia/flu/COVID booster shot clinic for adult day participants and other older adults in Nevada, as well as CMS’s role in communicating the importance vaccines to older adults and caregivers.
Attendees will have access to numerous resources from federal agencies and national organizations on the vaccine approval process, consumer materials, and other older adult vaccine-related information that would be helpful in local educational efforts and for those launching vaccination clinics.
