Vaccine Access


People with disabilities are at the greatest risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. Because of this fact, Western Reserve Independent Living Center has partnered with the Disability Vaccine Access Opportunities Center (DVAO Center), a national center that provides resources, training, and technical assistance to address vaccine hesitancy and barriers for people with disabilities. The DVAO Center will support us as we assist people with disabilities who may have specific disability-related questions and barriers with getting the COVID-19 vaccination.

 

Vaccine Information

Vaccine information is complicated; it may even feel overwhelming at times. We want to help consumers get connected to information about the vaccine, find the answers they are looking for that encourages their decision to become vaccinated, and support for the disability community.

Do you…

  • Need a vaccine at your door?
  • Need help with a barrier that is keeping you from getting vaccinated?
  • Need help finding vaccination information?
  • Need assistance with ensuring a vaccine clinic is accessible?

We will assist with peer support, information & referral, transportation barriers, finding factual information, connection to medical professionals for questions/answers, and more!

We cannot provide medical advice.
