The AARP in Iowa is supporting President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for nursing home workers. Biden announced new vaccine requirements, booster shots, and mask efforts on Wednesday.

His new requirement will withhold Medicare and Medicaid funding from nursing homes and facilities that don't follow the rules.

The AARP Iowa State Director says over two thousand nursing home staff and residents have died because of COVID-19 in Iowa.
