LIFTT Partners with Pharm406 To Increase Vaccine Access For Seniors & People With Disabilities

Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow (LIFTT) and Billings-based pharmacy Pharm406 are pleased to announce they have entered into a partnership to provide vaccine services to people with disabilities and the aging population across LIFTT’s 18-county service area in southcentral and southeastern Montana.

The partnership is made possible through a grant LIFTT received from USAging and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to participate in a nationwide effort known as the Aging and Disability Vaccine Collaborative (ADVC).

Under the partnership, LIFTT and Pharm406 will work together under CDC guidelines to organize and facilitate a series of vaccination clinics offering the Influenza and COVID-19 vaccines in locations across Big Horn, Carbon, Carter, Custer, Dawson, Fallon, Garfield, Golden Valley, McCone, Musselshell, Powder River, Prairie, Richland, Rosebud, Stillwater, Treasure Wibaux, and Yellowstone counties. The exact dates, times, and locations of clinics will be forthcoming. Updates can be found at https://www.liftt.org.

“The strategic, innovative, and creative partnership formed between LIFTT and Pharm406 will remove many barriers that have prevented and continue to prevent the aging and disabled population of southcentral and southeastern Montana from receiving the COVID-19 and Influenza vaccines,” said LIFTT Executive Director Carlos Ramalho.

“Together, LIFTT and Pham406 will bring the vaccine to people wherever they are. It is a joy to have the opportunity to work with Kyle Austin, the community-minded and selfless Montana leader who founded Pharm406 during the COVID-19 pandemic. We thank Kyle for making Pharm406 available to the aging and disabled population of southeastern Montana. The COVID-19 and Influenza vaccines they will receive will improve their lives,” continued Ramalho.

“Pharm406 is grateful for the opportunity to serve the aging and disabled population of southcentral and southeastern Montana through LIFTT. We are happy to know that USAging and ACL made resources available to pay for this vital work. Pharm406 will do everything in its power to provide the population with the COVID-19 and Influenza vaccines they need. We are looking forward to getting on the road and meeting the folks.” said Pham406 Founder and Owner, Kyle Austin.
