Adults With Disabilities and Caregivers of People With Disabilities, Your Experience with Vaccinations is Needed!

Family and Paid Caregivers, Your Experience with Vaccinations is Needed!

The Center for Health Equity at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community (IIDC) at Indiana University Bloomington is conducting an online survey to better understand the experience and thoughts of the disability community about getting vaccinations, like flu, COVID-19, and measles. Family and paid caregivers of individuals (minor or adult) with disabilities living in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin) are invited to participate.

IIDC is one of the regional hubs for local vaccine outreach funded by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, to improve the vaccination among people with disabilities and their family and paid caregivers (e.g., direct support professionals, personal care attendants, etc.) in the FEMA Region 5.

The survey will ask about vaccination status, information sources about vaccines, needs and challenges in getting vaccines, and demographic information. The findings will be used to make access to vaccinations more equitable and to increase the vaccination rates among the disability community.

Participation in the survey is voluntary. The survey will not ask for participant’s name or other directly identifiable information, and responses will be kept confidential. The survey will take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
