    If you’re interested in getting the covid vaccination make sure to keep checking if you qualify.

    If you do no qualify you can reach out to a local social justice organization that may be leading a letter-writing campaign.

    In Detroit, the Detroit Disability Power, a social justice organization had great success and is helping pave the way to accessibility of covid vaccinations for individuals with differences.

    Detroit’s Covid vaccination queue is one of first to include people with ADHD, other disabilities

    I got mine everyone as I live in New York State. Right now, the supply of vaccines is limited. If you are planning on getting the vaccine, definitely check out your eligibility and make an appt as soon as your group is up.

    *I would suggest for people living in NY State and other places where supply of vaccines is limited; they have another person help them find an appt. I would not suggest staying up all night and jeopardizing your health to book an appt.

    Three things to know that I was informed by my doctors before receiving shot:

    1) It does NOT matter which vaccine you get. They are all effective and the important thing is you get an appt to get one!

    2) There is a 15 minute observation period followed by getting the injection. The observation period is to make sure no one gets any immediate reactions to the shot. Depending upon your medical condition, the facility may hold you longer then 15 minutes on the side of caution. However, there is nothing to worry about if you are held longer.

    3) Make sure to know what places (i.e. clinics, hospitals) will give you an appt based on your eligibility. Not all places administering the vaccine will accept people with medical conditions. In NY State, no pharmacies will take people with medical conditions.

    I received Pfizer and happy to discuss more of my experience if any one would like.
