Promoting Equitable Vaccine Rollout for Individuals with Disabilities

Apr 30, 2021  01:00 PM  EST | Past Webinars |

In this session, we explored how to improve vaccine awareness and access among individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD). Individuals with I/DD are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 or developing severe illness once they become sick. It is critical that healthcare professionals and community organizations collaborate and dismantle the barriers to vaccine education and access among the I/DD community. Our expert panel shared strategies to advocate for individuals with I/DD and highlighted on-the-ground approaches for equitable health care.
