  • Vaccine And Disability

People with disabilities are considered a high-risk group for severe sickness and death caused by COVID-19. Lack of access to healthcare is the biggest barrier people with disabilities face when seeking COVID-19 prevention, treatment, and education.

In a survey done by the American Association on Health and Disability, 27% of adults with disabilities said they would not be vaccinated or were unsure, based on vaccine hesitancy.

People who rely on direct care providers are at higher risk of complications from COVID-19. It is critical that direct care providers, teachers, and other caregivers for people with disabilities receive their COVID-19 vaccination to protect this at-risk population.
