The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. received funding from USAging’s Aging and Disability Vaccination Collaborative (ADVC). USAging’s Aging and Disability Vaccination Collaborative is funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living. The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging will host and sponsor vaccine clinics and potentially partner with community organizations, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and public health departments in Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Seneca, and Wyandot counties.
This funding will keep individuals informed of the importance of vaccination benefits. The focus will center on older adults and people with disabilities who are most at risk for negative health consequences and the underserved populations and disadvantaged communities. The grant will support vaccine accessibility, public health events, vaccine clinics, community outreach and education, and more. Together with other Aging and Disability Vaccination Collaborative grantees, the Area Agency on Aging will deliver vaccines and supportive services to more than 2 million older adults and people with disabilities.
