Protecting Seniors Through Immunization Act

“The importance of immunizations in managing preventable disease and improving general public health cannot be overstated. Too often, seniors wanting to be vaccinated can’t find the information they need or have trouble affording these essential, life-saving treatments. This is a common-sense bill that will help lower obstacles by expanding access to information and making vaccines more affordable for seniors.”

Congresswoman Donna Shalala (D-FL-27)

AVAC is proud to endorse the Protecting Seniors Through Immunization Act of 2019 which would eliminate out-of-pocket costs for vaccines covered under Medicare Part D and improve vaccine awareness and education for beneficiaries. This legislation is important for reducing financial barriers that many seniors face when seeking access to vaccines.

“As a physician, I know vaccines save lives. Removing cost barriers to vaccines will help ensure America’s seniors are better protected against preventable illnesses. I am proud to join my colleagues in introducing this important bill, and hope it can be signed into law.”
