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.
All 10 state area agencies on aging are teaming up with the state to assist because many older adults lack the technology to reach the online platforms 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.
Care Connection for Aging Services serves these counties: Bates, Benton, Carroll, Cedar, Chariton, Henry, Hickory, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis, Saline, St. Clair, and Vernon. The mission is to provide opportunities for positive aging experiences. For more information, visit www.goaging.org or call 1-800-748-7826.
