The Whatcom Council on Aging has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy requiring COVID-19 vaccination for access to the Bellingham Senior Activity Center and participation in our in-person programming beginning Monday, December 13, 2021. WCOA’s mission requires us to provide a safe and welcoming environment for the high-risk population we serve. We are adopting this policy to safeguard the health of our program participants and the community at large from an infectious disease that may be reduced by vaccinations. This is also an important step as we work to rebuild our senior center program participation and restart our congregate meals in the future.
It’s been two years since Aging Well Whatcom released their original Blueprint , and the Aging Well Whatcom Steering Committee is pausing to assess what progress has been made and how we may want to revise the Blueprint strategies. Aging Well Whatcom gathering input in several ways, right now please consider sharing your opinions and experience by taking the Aging Well Whatcom Survey.
