The sheet is designed as a tool for supporters and caregivers to use to explain the COVID-19 vaccine administration to individuals with disabilities, however, the sheet, which is designed as an FAQ document, can help answer questions for anyone. Some questions answered include:

  • Should someone who’s had COVID-19 take the vaccine?

  • Can someone get COVID-19 from taking the vaccine?
  • Does the vaccine change a person’s DNA?
  • Can a person stop wearing PPE or a mask after they are vaccinated?
  • Do we still have to socially distance after being vaccinated?
