We continue to work with City Council, State Representatives and Senators, ODP, IDS, Disability Rights Network and other Advocates to learn more about vaccine distribution. PPSG is working on a list that they can provide families various links and sites that are offering vaccine at this time.

We have spoken with DRN and City representatives about access issues for people with disabilities. We are seeking solutions for people who are homebound or unable to go out to receive the vaccine because of transportation issues, fear of crowds, standing in line, not wearing masks, etc. It seems like in the next few months the vaccine will be readily available to many and we will continue to build our lists of available sites to share with self-advocates and families.

The rapid test permission slip can only be filled out for those who have a gmail account. For anyone else, the form can be downloaded/printed and emailed to the Covid Specialist at
