New research brief: COVID-19 vaccination among disabled people

April 26, 2021

Many people with disabilities are at higher risk of both contracting COVID-19 and experiencing sever outcomes. Despite this, disability status is not typically included in COVID-19 case reports and most state vaccination plans have not considered disability status as a risk factor. 

RTC:Rural's newest fact sheet explores how people with disabilities are experiencing COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the United States. Addressing this knowledge gap is critical to ensuring that people with disabilities are considered as vaccination efforts progress during the ongoing pandemic and future health crises.
