COVID-19 vaccine toolkit now available for people with disabilities

A COVID-19 vaccine toolkit for people with disabilities is now available on the OHA Community Resources web page.  

The toolkit includes new Frequently Asked Questions with information specific to people with disabilities. Common questions include medication interaction, what to do about accessibility issues at clinics, immunocompromising health conditions and much more. 

Also included are two social stories, which are visual versions of important information, ASL videos, communication cards and many other resources. 

This was a collaborative effort between stakeholders in the disabilities community, Oregon Health Authority, the COVID Response and Recovery Unit and the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS).
