Because of the elevated risk of serious illness and death due to COVID-19, vaccination is critically important for people with disabilities. However, we know that many face significant barriers to getting vaccinated. The Administration for Community Living (ACL) has launched DIAL, the Disability Information and Access Line, to support the needs of people with disabilities seeking information and access to the COVID-19 vaccine in their communities. DIAL will connect people with disabilities to local resources that can provide information and assistance in obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, DIAL can connect callers to information and services that promote independent living, including inquiries related to food, housing, transportation, and a need for advocacy or peer counseling that may arise due to COVID-19.
