Senior News : Average American Life Expectancy Dropped By An Entire Year

The pandemic cut the U.S. life expectancy by a full year in the first half of 2020, reflecting the toll taken by COVID-19 as well as a rise in deaths from drug overdoses, heart attacks and diseases and side-effects caused by the coronavirus.  The last time there was a drop this dramatic was during World War II.  It’s a huge step backwards.  Americans now have the same life expectancy as they did in 2006, according to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Black and Latinos were hit the hardest, with 2.7 years shaved off of the life expectancy of Black Americans, 1.9 years off of Latino Americans and 0.8 years off of White Americas.

Congratulations To Centenarian Who Celebrates Her Birthday With COVID-19 Vaccine Shot

Congratulations are in order for Carolyn Salvado, a retired school teacher who celebrated her 100th birthday by going to the UC Health Vaccination Center at UC Gardner Neuroscience to get a COVID-19 vaccination.  “It’s important to get it [the vaccine],” she said, in order to stay healthy.  She was greeted at the Vaccination Center by a bouquet of flowers, but had to celebrate her birthday with relatives via Zoom.  This is her second shot, so hopefully she is good to go now.
