COVID-19 Vaccine Resources
for the Developmental Disabilities Community

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a virus that spreads easily and can make people very sick. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine protects against COVID-19 and is an important tool to help stop the pandemic. People with developmental disabilities, their families, and supporters play an important role in preventing COVID-19 by getting a vaccine.

The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities has developed two new resources to provide information about COVID-19 vaccines and help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities understand what to expect.

COVID-19 Vaccine Facts for the Developmental Disabilities Community

provides information about COVID-19 vaccines, including:

  • When, where, and how to get the vaccine
  • What to expect when getting the vaccine
  • What to expect after getting the vaccine
  • How to continue to stay safe before and after getting the COVID-19 vaccineView the fact sheet in PDF format-English

 

 

Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine: A Social Story for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities helps readers understand why it’s important to get a COVID-19 vaccine and what to expect before, during, and after vaccination. Direct Support Professionals, family members, and other supporters can use this social story to prepare people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for getting a COVID-19 vaccine by printing or sharing on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
