Our News Story from this Media Briefing

Older Adults Still at High Risk for Covid-19

Despite the high number of deaths in older adults from the Omicron surge, a significant number remain “un-boosted” — only 29.5% of people 65 and older are “fully boosted” with both first and second booster shots.

Speakers will discuss the challenges of getting older adults fully boosted, the efficacy of boosters against new variants for older adults, where access issues persist for isolated populations, and the need for sustaining public education campaigns to combat complacency and disinformation.
