Through the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration and Public Health Institute Communities RISE Together grant, USAging is supporting 23 Area Agencies on Aging as they provide vaccination outreach in 26 counties across nine states with low vaccination rates.
Through various forms of outreach, including a partnership with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program National Technical Assistance Center to provide information about vaccines during Medicare Enrollment, providing stipends to volunteers to educate the public about vaccines, providing vaccination incentives, as well as other forms of outreach and education, these 23 AAAs are working to increase the number of older Americans who get vaccinated against COVID-19, thereby saving lives and helping to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
