COVID-19 Resources for People with Disabilities
Attend a vaccine webinar on March 9

People with disabilities (PwD) and/or certain ongoing health problems are at a higher risk of getting very sick if they get COVID-19. The Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities (CCPD) has updated their list of resources to help people with disabilities get their basic needs met during this public health crisis. This information includes how to find accessible information resources, vaccination information, civil rights and non-discrimination during COVID-19, mental health resources, and more. Click here to download an accessible PDF with this information.

The Cambridge community can learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and the disability community at the following webinar, hosted by the Center for Public Representation and its partners:
