Ensuring Access to COVID-19 Vaccines for Older Adults and People with Disabilities Who Are Homebound: Recommendations and Considerations for Federal, State, and Local Agencies and Their Partners   [open pdf - 694KB]

From the Executive Summary: "Based on stakeholder interviews, a grey literature review, a peer-reviewed literature review, and virtual convenings with public health and aging sector leaders, Trust for America's Health (TFAH) proposes the following recommendations for enhancing access to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccines for older adults who are homebound and people with a disability who are homebound: #1 Prioritize the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine to people who are homebound -- especially older adults and those with disabilities -- and their caregivers, providing sufficient vaccines and the necessary resources to administer them to protect all homebound persons in the shortest time possible. #2 Develop a standardized operational definition of 'people who are homebound' that can be used to prioritize and provide COVID-19 vaccination for this population and their paid and unpaid caregivers. #3 Guarantee equitable vaccine access to homebound persons and ensure that none are under-served or overlooked due to race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, urban or rural location, or other factors."
