Strategies to Improve Equitable Vaccine Access for Older Adults and People With Disabilities

The Administration for Community Living has compiled strategies and best practices for helping older adults and people with disabilities access COVID-19 vaccines.

This compendium provides creative approaches to outreach and education, vaccine appointment facilitation, ensuring website and vaccination site accessibility, and reaching people who cannot be vaccinated outside of their homes. Also included are examples of how the aging and disability network have collaborated with state agencies at virtually every stage of the vaccination process to ensure access for people with disabilities and older adults. 

This companion piece is a summary of ACL’s programs, with examples of activities and partnerships that can support vaccine access.
