Expanding COVID-19 Vaccine Access

The UConn UCEDD received ACL/CDC supplemental funding to Expand COVID-19 Vaccine Access for People with Disabilities.  The project will:

  • Conduct a survey persons with disabilities and caregivers about their experiences receiving COVID-19 vaccines
  • Assess the training needs of local health departments and local points of contact to administer COVID-19 vaccines and boosters to children, youth, and adults with disabilities in the community and at home
  • Develop resources for vaccine site coordinators and personnel, vaccine providers, persons with disabilities, and families on accessibility and accommodations, vaccine uptake, fear of needles, and public health emergency preparedness
