Survey

Several partners that serve people with disabilities want to better understand experiences around finding and getting the COVID-19 vaccine, especially among BIPOC communities. They developed a short survey in six languages (Somali, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Vietnamese, and English) for anyone in Washington state who has any disability, and/or anyone who cares for a person with a disability. The survey will be open through July 2021, and survey responses are anonymous, optional and will be used to create outreach and partnership programs to increase vaccine awareness and access for people with disabilities and their families.
Here is the link to the survey: WASHINGTON STATE COVID-19 VACCINE DISABILITY SURVEY

What is Blind COVID?

Blind COVID is a grant funded by the Washington State Department of Health that was given to the Washington State School for the Blind. The goal of this grant was to create and find accessible resources for people who are blind, specifically in Washington, but we hope we reach other individuals as well. These resources specifically deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
