We need your help! Did you know that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in the United States are more likely to get COVID-19 and have worse health outcomes than people without IDD?
We are excited to share that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) has developed a new suite of COVID-19 vaccine materials specifically designed for people with IDD who have extreme low literacy and their caregivers. These free materials, including a poster and social story, use simple illustrations and easy-to-read messages to explain how to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Explore CDC’s new materials and share them with your networks!
We appreciate your help with sharing this important information with people with intellectual disabilities, their caregivers, and the organizations that support them.
