BOSTON, MA USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- OCTOBER 6, 2022:
As the COVID-19 pandemic nears its third anniversary, what is the state of vaccination among adults in the United States?
COVID-19 vaccines have saved hundreds of thousands of lives and greatly reduced serious illness. Yet uptake of COVID-19 boosters is lagging. Meanwhile, millions of U.S. adults have missed routine, non-COVID vaccinations since 2020, raising the risk of vaccine-preventable diseases.
Vaccination rates among Medicare beneficiaries may rise as of 2023; and patient cost-sharing for vaccinations covered under Medicare Part D prescription drug plans will be eliminated by the Inflation Reduction Act. Other actions may soon be necessary to improve uptake of all CDC-recommended vaccines among all U.S. adults, and to prepare for future pandemic threats.
Join us to explore the state of adult vaccination in the U.S. through the new web-based Vaccine Track program, and prospects for raising vaccination rates among Medicare beneficiaries and other U.S. adults.
