Starting last week we took action! Millions of learning moments have already improved the lives of older adults on GetSetUp and now our Vaccine Information sessions are easing worries over COVID-19 vaccines. Through live online Covid-19 Vaccine Information sessions older adults learn where to go for information in their area and how to navigate their state or county’s process for scheduling a vaccine, and have some of their questions answered.
Thanks to the support of local health officials in various states we are able to share first hand knowledge of vaccine processes by those who have been on the frontlines. This adds another great layer of local support to each community.
