COVID-19 Vaccine for Youth with Disabilities: Information for Caregivers (Multiple Languages)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 12 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccination. People with disabilities or special health needs may be at higher risk for more severe illness from COVID-19. Families and caregivers are encouraged to strongly consider vaccinating children with any underlying health condition or disability.

The Minnesota Department of Health made a helpful guide for caregivers about what to expect when getting the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccine safety. It also includes examples of requesting accommodations at vaccination sites. It’s been translated into 13 different languages to help all Minnesotans.
