With the roll-out of the national COVID-19 vaccination programme, there is now hope of a way out of the pandemic and its associated social restrictions.
We recognise that whilst there is much hope surrounding the vaccinations, there is also a lot for carers, support workers, family members and organisations to think about and plan for to ensure everyone who wants the vaccine can have it safely and without delay or unnecessary restrictions.
We have collated a list of useful resources to help you think through common questions and concerns surrounding the roll out of the vaccinations for people with learning disabilities, autistic people and people with mental health conditions, including those who lack capacity to make most, if not all, decisions about accessing health interventions.
Learning Disability England have also collated a catalogue of resources about the vaccinations, which you can view here>
