Are vaccine sites accessible to individuals with disabilities?

Last Updated: 09/21/2021

Community-based sites have been designed to meet the needs of all residents in the state. These sites meet ADA accessibility standards, and special arrangements are made for those with mobility and other challenges as needed.

Individuals with disabilities must be permitted to be accompanied by a support person or companion, and individuals with disabilities cannot be denied access if they are unable to wear a mask due to a disability or medical condition.

All vaccination sites have also been encouraged to establish dedicated vaccine 'lanes' for those requiring additional time or additional assistance. Individuals may contact a vaccination site directly to speak to a representative about an accommodation in advance of their appointment.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Accommodations

Individuals can download communications cards in English and Spanish that help with pre-screening when it comes time to get the vaccine.
