VaxAbilities disability-friendly vaccination clinics are now available to ensure that Massachusetts residents with developmental disabilities and other sensory-support needs have the most comfortable and positive COVID-19 vaccination experiences possible. Vaccine appointments at designated disability-friendly locations staffed with trained professionals will provide skilled support to children and adults with disabilities and their family members and caretakers.
VaxAbilities is an initiative of the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Network, comprising the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center at the UMass Chan Medical School, the Institute for Community Inclusion at UMass Boston, the Massachusetts Disability Law Center and the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council. Numerous other partners include state agencies, major clinical centers throughout the commonwealth and other professional groups.
