Creating an Accessible Vaccine Experience for People with Disabilities and Older Adults

The “Creating an Accessible Vaccine Experience for People with Disabilities and Older Adults” document highlights both physical and programmatic accessibility considerations for vaccine sites. Helpful tips are given for vaccine site accessibility, providing communication, and addressing accessibility for making appointments. This document was created by the Vaccine Information Collaborative for Older Adults and People with Disabilities which is comprised of national organizations serving the disability and aging populations.
