Flu/COVID-19 Vaccines Outreach: Protecting Our Communities

September 20, 2023

With the ongoing concerns surrounding public health and the importance of flu and COVID-19 vaccinations, NAPCA is committed to ensuring that everyone has access to the latest vaccines to protect themselves and their communities.

The flu shot season typically runs from September to December, and during this time, individuals of all ages are encouraged to get vaccinated against the influenza virus. The flu shot remains one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of the flu, reduce the severity of symptoms, and ultimately save lives.

New COVID-19 vaccines are approved and available in September.  Clayton Fong, President and CEO of NAPCA encourages seniors to get the vaccine, “Getting vaccinated every year is the best way to prevent serious illness from flu and COVID-19.  The people most at risk for getting very sick from these diseases are over age 65 or have health conditions like asthma, diabetes, or heart and lung disease.  If you are 65-74, the risk of hospitalization is 36 times higher. The older you are, the higher your risk is. So, if you are over age 65 or have underlying condition(s), it is especially important to get the most updated vaccine.”

NAPCA is hosting the first vaccination outreach event of the season:

Date: 10/3/2023, Tuesday

Calls to Helpline

In response to COVID-19, NAPCA launched its free 1-800 Multilingual Phone Helpline for older adults and caregivers in March 2020. From March 2020 to June 2022, the Helpline received over 14,202 calls from 10+ states. NAPCA’s Helpline counselors provide in-language support for COVID-19 Vaccine and COVID-19 emergency resources, Social Security, Medicare, general public benefits and more. NAPCA’s Helpline was featured by QUARTZ and covered by NBC News.

Older Adults

In 2020, NAPCA’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), in partnership with the US Department of Labor and over 400+ community based organizations, placed over 1047 older adults in non-profits and government agencies across the country. NAPCA worked with them to develop skills training to find employment, and quickly shifted to a virtual format to keep participants engaged and paid throughout the pandemic.

Older Adults

The Senior Environmental Employment program (SEE) placed 162 working older adults in the Environmental Protection Agency. Of these, over 50% of the participants were age 70+.


NAPCA was one of 20 national non-profit organizations to receive a $14 million award per year, totaling $56 million to continue operating the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) over the next 4 years. SCSEP participants will operate in 59 counties in 7 states.
