COVID-19 vaccines are becoming available in Australia. We know there are many questions about the vaccine rollout process especially for prioritised groups. That’s why we want to hear directly from Disability Support Workers who will be prioritised to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the coming months.
We have developed a short survey to find out what questions you have, your concerns about timing of the roll-out, what factors may affect your decision to have the vaccine, the information you need and how you would like to receive that information.
We hope that the findings from this survey will assist governments and disability organisations to effectively communicate and support Disability Support Workers, and people with disabilities, during the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
Who can take part?
Support workers for people with disability who work in settings such as group homes, private homes, residential care settings and day programs.
