Seniors are vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus infection. SATA CommHealth has a committed group of frontline healthcare workers who are helping to support them. We serve them in their homes, our therapy centres as well as our medical centres.
It is important for seniors to get the influenza (virus) vaccine as well as the pneumococcal (bacterial) vaccine. When a senior is infected by the COVID-19 virus, he may get a pneumonia and can get infected by other infections of the lungs as well. That is why it is crucial to protect them against influenza and pneumococcal infections.
Even though there is no vaccine for COVID-19 currently, it is important to help protect our seniors against other types of lung infections.
Each influenza vaccine cost about $30 to $40 and each pneumococcal vaccine (PCV-13) cost $120 to $150 in clinics. Many seniors cannot afford these vaccinations and choose not to take them.
Your donations will help us reach out to these vulnerable seniors to vaccinate them as well as to help us continue running our existing services for our seniors.
