AAHD COVID-19 and Vaccine Survey for Adults with Disabilities

The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) is very concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on persons with disabilities and has launched a cross disability survey to look at vaccine hesitancy and access challenges people with disabilities are encountering. The objective of the  COVID-19 and Vaccine Survey for Adults with Disabilities is to better understand the reasons adults with disabilities have or will take the vaccine, are not sure about taking the vaccine, or have decided not to take the vaccine.  This information will be shared with the disability community, health and public health professionals, policymakers, and researchers. 

The survey will be open from March 12, 2021, to March 26, 2021 at the following link:

The average completion time for the survey is less than 8 minutes.  The survey asks a  series of disability-specific and general questions about vaccine decisions.  Please feel free to circulate the survey.

Alternate formats such as large print, Braille, or electronic versions of the survey are available upon request to jditsch@aahd.us.  For more information about the survey contact: Charles E. Drum, MPA, JD, PhD at cdrum@aahd.us or (301) 545-6140, Extension 5.
