COVID-19 Vaccine Update:
On Friday we sent out a memo addressing Special Olympics Ontario's efforts alongside the Down Syndrome Association of Ontario advocating to improve access to the COVID-19 vaccine for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers.
We are working with government and other stakeholders to improve access to the vaccine for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Visit vaccinesupport.ca to:
- Find where to book a vaccine appointment or
- Complete a form to request help to book a vaccine appointment.
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities who do not have access to the internet AND who have tried to book an appointment, but have not been able to, can call 1-888-333-5515 ext. 329 and leave a message to request support.
The goal of this website and phone number is to connect YOU and YOUR FAMILY with your Public Health Unit and a vaccine appointment in your region.
We’ll be here to help and support you every step of the way!
