Column: People with disabilities can’t be left behind during the pandemic

“Highly prioritizing the disability community means prioritizing vaccinations to all facilities that house people with disabilities, from long-term care settings to group homes, places big and small, licensed and independent; it means prioritizing vaccinations to permanent and temporary caregivers who care for people with disabilities, at home, on the road or in facility; and finally, it means prioritizing people with disabilities at the same level as people with underlying health conditions, people 65 years and older, and people who are unhoused.”
