NEVADA – Xavier Becerra, Secretary of Health and Human Services, was in Reno today to highlight the Biden Administration’s healthcare objectives and to encourage elders to get vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19.
Secretary Becerra stopped at Café Con Papi as part of his Latino Health Tour Mi Salud Importa for a listening session with Latino elected, education, and healthcare leaders about the Administration’s healthcare goals, including closing health inequalities in Latino communities.
Secretary Becerra also spoke with nursing home leadership, staff, and patients about the importance of seniors getting vaccinated, highlighting the White House’s recently announced COVID-19 winter preparedness plan and Winter Playbook for Nursing Homes, which will make it even easier for Americans to access the tools that will protect them this holiday season, including COVIDTests.gov.
As COVID-19 instances and deaths rise, the Biden Administration just restarted the home-delivery program for testing kits.
The plan and playbook move the Administration’s efforts to protect some of the most vulnerable Americans, especially those in long-term care institutions, forward.
