AHCA releases updated information on Boosters and recorded townhall with U.S. DHHS

Earlier this week, AHCA/NCAL, LeadingAge, and the AARP co-hosted a town hall featuring Admiral Rachel L. Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the head of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps to answer questions about the Omicron variant, boosters, and why we need to step up the timeline to get the booster. Walter Ramos, President and CEO of Rogerson Communities, also spoke about his experience encouraging booster uptake, as well as a family member of a current nursing home resident. Each speaker also provided information on why a booster is so critical given the spread of Omicron.
AHCA/NCAL has also updated its
handout on the importance of boosters based on the latest data considering the rapid spread of the Omicron variant. This handout, as well as other resources, is available on the #GetVaccinated website.
