Concerns about COVID-19 and the vaccine

New information seems to come out every day on COVID-19, its spread, and what is required to stay safe. The following current guidance about these concerns might be helpful for you.

What you can do & how you can help

People with disabilities are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection and complications. Most people with disabilities are not more likely to become infected with or have severe illness from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19.) However, some people with disabilities might be more likely to get infected or have severe illness because of underlying medical conditions, congregate living settings or systemic health and social inequities [source: CDC]

Information is key to staying protected. Review additional tips and safe practices for persons with disabilities, their families and the community.

Direct Support Professionals and other caregivers 

People who work directly with vulnerable populations have extra responsibilities to ensure those they care for are as protected as possible. In this section, you’ll find guidance for this critical workforce.

The National Association for Direct Service Providers (NADSP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provide guidance for family members and professional caregivers who support people with disabilities.


We invite you to take a short survey.

All information is kept confidential.

Your input will help us keep up-to-date information available on COVID-19. The survey information will be used to guide the identification and development of additional website information and public service announcements on COVID-19 for people with disabilities, family members, disability professionals and the public.
