Feds Ramping Up Vaccine Access For People With Disabilities
[Source: Disability Scoop]
The Biden administration is putting big bucks behind an effort to get more people with disabilities vaccinated against COVID-19.
As eligibility opens up to everyone nationwide, federal officials are acknowledging that challenges remain in reaching many people with disabilities who face transportation barriers, difficulty with scheduling appointments or who might struggle to manage a visit to a mass vaccine site, among other issues.
Now the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Administration for Community Living will provide nearly $100 million to improve access for people with disabilities and older adults.
