COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Sheet

COVID-19 changed the way we live. We do things differently to stay safe from COVID-19. We stay in our homes a lot. We have to wear masks when we go out. It can be harder to get the services we need. How will things get back to normal?

The COVID-19 vaccine will help!

The COVID-19 vaccine is a shot that keeps people from getting sick with COVID-19.

COVID-19 is especially dangerous to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities — but too often, the facts about COVID-19 are not shared in ways that are accessible to us. That’s why ASAN has released this fact sheet about the COVID-19 vaccine. This fact sheet answers questions like:

  • Why should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
  • What will getting the vaccine be like?
  • Is the vaccine safe?
  • When can I get the vaccine?
  • Do I still need to wear a mask after I get the vaccine?
