Join us in supporting the call to prioritise vaccinations for people with a learning disability in the UK.
The government should ensure that people with learning disabilities are high on the priority list for vaccination. Shockingly, young people with learning disabilities aged 18-34 are thirty times more likely to die from Covid-19 than those without a learning disability.
Autism East Midlands are supporting the campaign by BASW.
The British Association of Social Workers have responded and issued a statement in support of the legal challenge and calling for the vaccine to be made available to all those with a learning disability – you can read their statement here:
