Town Hall to Advocate for COVID Vaccines for People with Disabilities

  • Date: 02/04/2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Location: Via Zoom
People with disabilities are at increased risk for getting and dying from COVID. Yet we are not being prioritized by the State of California in its vaccination guidelines. While family members of and staff for people with some disabilities are eligible for vaccination, the same is not true for the people they care for who are more in jeopardy.
 
In addition, the rollout has been very difficult to follow. There is little information about new phases, available appointments, or timelines for vaccinations. What information exists is very hard to find, and it's often not accessible.
People with disabilities can't wait for vaccines.
People with disabilities should be prioritized
in the next phase 1B.
Our voices need to be heard!
Join us for a
Town Hall on COVID Vaccines for People with Disabilities
  • Join members of the California Vaccine Advisory Committee from the disability community who will provide updates and comments
  • Hear personal stories from people with disabilities and family members about the importance of getting the vaccine now
  • Learn about ways to take action by calling and emailing our public officials who are making these critical decisions
  • We will take your questions and comments
You can join even after the town hall has begun.
