Dr. Won Lee was featured in the NYTimes article “More Than 80 Percent of Seniors Are Vaccinated. That’s ‘Not Safe Enough.’”

Dr. Lee, along with other clinicians in the Geriatrics home care program, has delivered COVID vaccines to several patients. However, there is still vaccine hesitancy among the over-65 population, leading to just over 80% of them being fully vaccinated across the nation. While access is an issue for many, in the case of patients at BMC, the main issue is disinformation and political divides. Patients are concerned about the efficacy of the vaccine along with how it will affect them. But, our home care clinicians are taking the first step to reaching higher vaccination rates through the home care program.
