Here is accessibility information we received about the FEMA vaccination site in

Philadelphia at the Convention Center that opened up this week. This is an

appointment-only site for Philadelphia residents in Phases 1A and 1B.

Those interested can use the

The site will have signage with directions for

clients with access and functional needs and

non-English speaking clients in five languages,

with additional language support on call as needed.

There will be an assisted check-in area and process

for clients with access and functional needs. There will be o

We continue to work with City Council, State Representatives and Senators, ODP,

IDS, Disability Rights Network and other Advocates to learn more

about vaccine distribution.  PPSG is working on a list that they

can provide families various links and sites that are offering vaccine at this time.

 

We have spoken with DRN and City representatives about access

issues for people with disabilities.  We are seeking solutions for people

who are homebound or unable to go out to receive the vaccine

because of transportation issues, fear of crowds, standing in line,

not wearing masks, etc. It seems like in the next few months the

vaccine will be readily available to many and we will continue to

build our lists of available sites to share with self-advocates and families.
