The COVID-19 vaccine rollout has presented a number of challenges for low-income older adults with limited English proficiency. Lack of digital access has proved to be a critical barrier to making an appointment online, and information about the vaccine, vaccination sites, and eligibility can be confusing, hard to find, or is only presented in English.
Join this event by St. Barnabas Senior Services on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, 2:00pm to discuss the issue. You can submit questions ahead of time. Register here.
