COVID-19 Information for Older Adults
The CDC has identified older adults, 65 years and older, are at higher risk for more serious COVID-19. CDC data suggest older people are twice as likely to have serious COVID-19. Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. People 65 and older who received both doses of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines showed a 94% reduced risk of COVID-19 related hospitalization.
