Join AARP for a Coronavirus tele-town hall where we will address the topic of Boosters, Flu Season and the Impact on Nursing Homes. As we prepare to gather with friends and family this holiday season, it is critical to take the necessary precautions to protect ourselves and our loved ones against influenza viruses and COVID-19.  Experts are particularly concerned that flu season could be worse than normal this year making it even more important to get vaccinated. We will also address ways to keep your loved ones in nursing homes safe and protected this winter.  

 This event will focus on the following areas:

  • Importance of staying up-to-date on your COVID booster and flu shot as we enter a particularly challenging cold and flu season.
  • The latest updates on COVID boosters, variants, flu shots and how to stay safe as we prepare to gather with family and friends.
  • What you can do to ensure the safety and protection of your loved one residing in a nursing home.
