Medicare beneficiaries say they’d take an early Covid vaccine

Nov 11 2020

As a group, Medicare beneficiaries generally share at least one thing: Covid-19 risk.

Most of the program’s 62.8 million recipients are age 65 or older, making them more likely to develop complications from the virus or succumb to it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent agency data shows that of 217,000-plus Covid deaths in the U.S., nearly 172,000 were in that age group.
