CDC Warns Unvaccinated Staff Pose Risk to Nursing Home Residents

Unvaccinated nursing home staff are being linked to a surge of COVID-19 infections in senior facilities.

The CDC is investigating one Colorado nursing home after it was hit hard by the virus.

Disease detectives found that many workers at the facility were not vaccinated.

At another Colorado memory care facility, 16 fully vaccinated residents caught COVID-19 and four died.

Health experts worried that lagging vaccination rates could reverse the success in protecting vulnerable and elderly populations during the pandemic.
