Resources and programs are available to help older Vermonters find services and support to live longer, healthier lives.

Information for You

Group living settings like apartment complexes, senior housing or long-term care facilities should follow strategies to detect and prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like COVID-19. Find guidance and resources to help.

Find information about getting your COVID-19 vaccine.

Safe and effective vaccines are critical to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. We are building on a strong existing infrastructure, experience, and valuable partnerships to make sure all Vermonters have access to the vaccine. 

For many traditions, gathering together is the heart of a faith-based community. Gatherings can increase the risk of spreading COVID-19, so it's important to follow public health guidelines to keep communities safe while keeping traditions alive. 

Suicide touches the lives of many Vermonters. Our intentional self-harm and death by suicide rates are significantly higher than the United States rates. Find help, learn about warning, signs, risk and protective factors. Read about what Vermont is doing to prevent suicide.

 

Getting a flu shot matters more this year than ever. When fewer people get sick with the flu, we can preserve medical resources in case there is a rise in COVID-19. Get information about the flu vaccine, where to get vaccinated, and information on the effectiveness of the flu vaccine.
