Biden Administration Announces Campaign To Boost COVID-19 Vaccination Rate Among Nursing Home Residents

On Tuesday, November 22, the Biden Administration announced a six-week campaign to raise the COVID-19 vaccination rate among nursing home residents. 

In response, AHCA/NCAL President and CEO Mark Parkinson and LeadingAge President and CEO Katie Smith Sloan said, "Nursing homes have done a remarkable job at vaccinating residents, but we have work to do with the most recent booster [...] We all share the same goal: ensuring the health and well-being of older adults. We believe we can continue to increase that booster rate, and to do so requires a shared commitment from the government and other health care providers."
