COVID-19 vaccine prioritisation for people with disabilities – The Lancet Public Health

People with disabilities have not been adequately included in the COVID-19 response, resulting in pandemic-related inequities,1 but also reflecting deeper social injustice and exclusion. At this inflection point in the pandemic, commitment to advancing health equity for the remainder of the vaccine rollout and beyond is paramount. For people with disabilities, this goal can only be achieved through improved approaches to tracking disability disparities and prioritising partnerships with the disability community. As the so-called new normal is envisioned, the disability community must no longer be an afterthought.
