Every day in America about 10,000 people turn 65. By the year 2030, roughly one out of every five Americans will be aged 65 years and older. Unfortunately, many older adults currently do not receive vaccinations, screenings, and other preventive services national experts recommend. These important services help detect many diseases, delay their onset, or identify them early in their most treatable stages to ensure healthier, longer, and more productive lives for older adults. By presenting and interpreting available state and national self-reported data, the report Enhancing Use of Clinical Preventive Services Among Older Adults: Closing the Gap [PDF – 10MB] aims to raise awareness of crucial gaps and increase interventions focused on those currently underserved.
