MI-DDI launches COVID-19 vaccine confidence initiative to #VaccinateByADA

Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute (MI-DDI), a member of the nationwide Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) network, is launching a new public health initiative, COVID-19 Vaccine Access and Confidence for People with Disabilities.

MI-DDI is one of 23 AUCD network centers strategically located across the country to reach local disability communities, reduce access barriers and promote vaccine confidence. The goal is to vaccinate all eligible people with disabilities by the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26.

The initiative launches this week with a focus on building vaccine confidence in the disability community through family conversations in the weeks between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Network centers will share information on the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines in community meetings, newsletters, social media campaigns, short videos and other local outreach efforts.

MI-DDI will create and disseminate COVID-19 vaccination information tailored for people with disabilities, their family members and the people who care for them. These resources will be shared on MI-DDI’s social media platforms, website and through e-newsletter subscribers, reaching a wide array of providers and community members. MI-DDI will use partnerships with Michigan-based disability organizations to further expand information reach.
