Call to Action: Priority, Accessibility and Inclusion for Persons with Disabilities in COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout
IDA and IDDC call on UN Agencies and national governments to
ensure persons with disabilities are recognised as a priority group and
that vaccination plans are inclusive, equitable and accessible.
Specifically, we call for:
• Prioritization: Global and national vaccination plans must prioritize reaching persons with disabilities.
• Accessibility and active involvement: Health information
campaigns and vaccination delivery sites must be inclusive and
accessible to all persons with disabilities.
• Inclusive data collection and dissemination: Data collected
on vaccination programmes must be disaggregated by age, sex and
disability and shared in accessible formats.
