Health insurers aim to help speed up COVID-19 vaccinations for 2 million at-risk seniors

The Biden administration on Wednesday announced a program aimed at vaccinating an estimated 2 million at-risk people in the U.S. who are 65 years old or older. As part of the Vaccine Community Connectors program, health insurers such as the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association will help to identify people who qualify for the initiative, educate these individuals about the “safety, efficacy, and value” of COVID-19 vaccines, help them schedule appointments to get the vaccine, and then arrange transportation, according to a statement put out by the BCBS and America’s Health Insurance Plans, the trade group for most of the large health insurers in the U.S. “Their goal again is to get 2 million of the most vulnerable seniors vaccinated as soon as possible,” Andy Slavitt, a White House senior advisor for the nation’s COVID-19 response, said Wednesday during a press briefing.
