Equity gaps in vaccine rates in older adults persist, especially in Latino, Black, Native American, and other communities of color.

  • 76% of our 65+ older Californian population we serve have received one dose of vaccine and 63% are fully vaccinated.
  • Adults 65+ make up 73% of COVID deaths in California
  • Almost 70% of deaths are from communities of color

The federal government has provided CDA’s aging and disability networks with approximately $6.5M to reach BIPOC older Californians that remain unvaccinated and at highest risk of death and serious consequences from COVID-19.

CDA’s outreach campaign will target specific regions and zip codes with low vaccination rates and high population of adults 65+. The Vaccine outreach campaign will address vaccine barriers for older adults that live alone, lack technology, or speak other languages other than English.
