Here’s some excellent advice from the National Council on Aging about the Covid-19 Vaccines:
- The approved COVID-19 vaccines require two doses to provide optimal protection against the virus.
- The vaccine is free for people with and without insurance—beware of scams asking you to pay for it.
- Check with your health department, pharmacy, or doctor about when and where to receive the vaccine.
The past year has been historic for many reasons, including the development and launch of COVID-19 vaccines. Importantly, older adults and individuals from diverse backgrounds have been considered at every step during the research and development process.
