DABC joins other disability organizations to advocate for vaccine distribution

On December 18, DABC sent a letter on behalf of 15 organizations to Adrian Dix, BC’s Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, BC’s Provincial Health Officer, to advocate for priority of vulnerable people with disabilities within BC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy.

Specifically, we wish to ensure that people living and working in the followig settings be included in the list of priorities to receive the first wave of COVID-19 vaccine distribution:

  • People living and working in group homes and other home-based support service settings; and
  • People detained involuntarily under the Mental Health Act and health care providers working in psychiatric settings.
