MI-DDI COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence Initiative

A young girl with Down syndrome is being hugged by her older sister. They both have light brown hair. In the upper left hand corner reads, #VaccinateByADA. In the lower left hand corner reads, For a COVID-19 vaccine, text your zip code to 438829 or visit vaccines.gov.

COVID-19 impacts all communities, including the over 61 million Americans who have disabilities. Approximately one in four Americans has a disability, yet current vaccination efforts do not consistently include them. MI-DDI is one of 23 Association of University Centers on Disabilities (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.

MI-DDI's mission is to contribute to the development of inclusive communities and quality of life for people with disabilities and their families through a culturally sensitive, statewide program of training and education, community support and services, research, and sharing of information. COVID-19 Vaccine Access and Confidence for People with Disabilities is made possible through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
