Vaccines Go Mobile to Keep Seniors From Slipping Through the Cracks in Contra Costa County

Seniors have had a hard time getting vaccines, so people are helping! The team of county nurses and nonprofit workers is targeting Contra Costa County residents who are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines but have been left out: residents of small assisted-living facilities that haven’t yet been visited by CVS or Walgreens, and occasionally people who live in low-income senior housing. The retail pharmacy giants have a federal government contract to administer vaccines in most long-term care facilities.
