COVD-19 ‘File of Life’ Cards Distribution
Our efforts to get 10,000 ‘COVID-19 File of Life’ cards to older adults across the region continued this week up in Northern Central Massachusetts!
This week, the Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging and Worcester County Sheriff’s Office went up to Leominster and Fitchburg to distribute hundreds more cards.
‘File of Life’ cards contain important medical information for first responders in the event of an emergency call. They are now a great place to store COVID-19 vaccine information and can be hung up right on a refrigerator!
Thank you again to our community partners, including the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.
