Digital divide a barrier to COVID vaccinations for some seniors

The Pima Council on Aging is helping connect adults 65 and up to the right resources.

Groups currently eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine include adults 65 and older. They account for nearly 20% of Arizona’s population. In some cases, they face the same digital divides as children and at-home learners. The Pima Council on Aging is one organization helping older adults overcome technological barriers that can prevent them from scheduling their shots. CEO and President W. Mark Clark discussed ways the PCOA is connecting senior Arizonans to the necessary resources.
