Care Connection can help older adults with COVID-19 vaccine registration

Date: February 18, 2021 | Category: News

Care Connection for Aging Services can help older adults find a clinic to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
Care Connection is partnering with the state Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) to help seniors register online for vaccinations and to coordinate transportation to and from their vaccination appointments. The agency also will conduct reminder calls for seniors’ second doses.
People 60 and older and their caregivers who need vaccine registration assistance may call Care Connection at 1-800-748-7826 or email information@goaging.org to give us your phone number.
“We are happy to partner with the state to help connect older adults to COVID-19 vaccination clinics,” said Diana Hoemann, Executive Director of Care Connection. “As an area agency on aging, we are a trusted resource for people 60 and older in 13 counties in West Central Missouri. We are dedicated to providing the information and guidance that seniors need to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.”
All 10 state area agencies on aging are teaming up with the state to assist because many older adults lack the Internet access to register for the vaccinations.
All Missourians age 65 and older are now eligible for vaccination. Additionally, those with certain high-risk health factors are also eligible now. More information is available at MOStopsCovid.com/seniors.
