In Pennsylvania, there is a great deal of vaccine misinformation and hesitancy. Not only that, but many long-term care facilities, senior centers, group homes, etc. are in rural areas. Therefore, facilities might not have access to transportation or the other resources necessary to get residents vaccinated.
Our mission is to ensure all older adults and people with disabilities in northwestern Pennsylvania have access to the latest COVID and flu vaccines.
LECOM Health and the NCOA are working with local community organizations to provide vaccine-related services in 12 northwestern Pennsylvania counties, meaning we are bound to be providing services in a county near you!
