Vaccine Navigators and Community Health
SPECIAL VACCINE PROGRAM
To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate? That Is The Question. (Zoom)
Thursday, October 19, 3:30 p.m.
The rapid development and approval of new vaccines is impressive. But who does it benefit for us to have all or any of these shots?
Instructor: Kathy Ales, MD, trained in general internal medicine and clinical epidemiology, served on the faculty at New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical College and as a physician at The New York Hospital and later at the University Medical Center at Princeton. As medical director for Jacobus Pharmaceutical Company, Inc., she assisted in the clinical research required for drug development for an ultra-rare neurological disorder medicine.
Registration required, no fee.
Who we are?
PSRC is a community nonprofit where aging adults and their families find support, guidance, education, and social programs to help them navigate life transitions and continue to be active, healthy, and engaged in the community.
What we do?
This newly revised Vaccine Navigator program will re-deploy volunteers to engage one-on-one with those clients, as well as direct contact with other community residents, to encourage a healthy vaccination regimen, including Covid-19 boosters, influenza vaccines, pneumonia, and shingles vaccines when appropriate.
Community Action Grant
PSRC received the largest Community Action Grant to revive its effective Vaccine Navigator Program to focus on vaccine health among older adults in the greater Princeton area. The initiative is focused on promoting community health through vaccine health for older adults.
The Vaccine Navigator program will include community health events, vaccine clinics, and supportive services through PSRC’s social service team.
