About the COVID-19 Vaccine Access Initiative:

Texas Partners for Inclusive Access is committed to making sure all Texans with disabilities feel safe and supported in learning about and getting the COVID-19 vaccine. In response to high rates of COVID-19 illness and death among individuals with disabilities, we have launched a collaborative statewide initiative to provide educational information on the COVID-19 virus and safe practices and to create more equitable access to testing and vaccines.
We collaborate with local medical experts and health leaders in communities throughout our state who can answer questions about vaccinations and address concerns that individuals with disabilities, family members, and other direct caregivers may have.
Partners also work in local communities across Texas to provide direct assistance to individuals with disabilities to find vaccines, get rides to appointments, arrange for drive thru clinics, or coordinate in-home vaccination options. Similarly, partners collaborate closely with vaccine clinic providers to offer guidance on needed technology, sensory, and communication accommodations.
Information and direct assistance are provided free of charge. Funding for these efforts is provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Administration for Community Living (ACL).
