Aging and Disability Vaccine Collaborative

The Aging and Disability Vaccine Collaborative (ADVC) funded by the USAging is meant to support vaccination education and promotion activities (e.g., community vaccine clinics, in-home vaccinations, transportation to vaccination sites, and mobile clinics) and to promote vaccine and wellness outreach and education for older adults and people with disabilities. This project focuses on the Flu, COVID-19, Pneumococcal, RSV, Shingles, and Tdap vaccines. In Montana, project partners include Montana University System (MUS): University of Montana Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities (UM RIIC), MonTech Assistive Technology Program, UM Skaggs School of Pharmacy, UM School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, and Montana State University College of Nursing. Montana Centers for Independent Living: Summit Independent Living, Ability Montana, and Living Independently for Today and Tomorrow (LIFTT).*

*LIFTT is funded separately from the collaborative project proposed by the other Montana partners; however, USAging is supporting all funded organizations to share strategies and information.

"The ADVC is supported by theAdministration for Community Living (ACL, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)) through USAging as part of a financial assistance award to USAging totaling $74,999,835 with 100 percent funding by ACL/HHS.
