ACL's COVID-19 Resources: Vaccine updates and more

June 23, 2021

COVID-19 vaccines are saving lives and helping many around the country resume regular activities. This is why we have dedicated most of this acl.gov/COVID-19 round-up to resources to help increase access to vaccines for older adults and people with disabilities. We have also created a new vaccine resource page so you can access all of these resources and more in one place.

Upcoming webinars:

Spread the word: Trained staff are standing by to help people with disabilities and older adults find vaccine locations, make appointments, and connect to local services and supports necessary to access vaccines. They also can provide information to answer questions or concerns about the vaccine. 

  • For people with disabilities: The new Disability Information and Assistance Center (DIAL) can be reached by calling 888-677-1199 or by emailing DIAL@n4a.org any time.  
  • For older adults:  Call the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116 or visit the website to chat live or browse resources. 

Both phone lines are staffed Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Eastern). 

Even more vaccine resources:

Guidance for ACL programs: ACL has released updated FAQs and Program Reporting Guidance for Adult Protective Services programs and FAQs for Older Americans Act Title VI grantees.

New ACL testing fact sheet: Testing is an important way to help control the spread of COVID-19. Early detection through a positive test can identify people who need care so they can get treatment and don’t pass the virus on to others. This new ACL fact sheet provides an overview of COVID-19 testing, including when you should get tested, where tests are available, and who pays.

Updates from CDC: CDC has been regularly updating its COVID-19 guidance and resources, including updated pages for people with disabilities, older adults, paratransit operators, and In-home Social service providers and clients
