More About the DVAO Center

On August 24, Able SC, Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU) and The Partnership for Inclusive Disaster Strategies launched the new Disability Vaccine Access Opportunities (DVAO) website and toolkit

This online hub serves as a guide for Centers for Independent Living (CILs) across the nation in providing critical services to people with disabilities before, during and after public health emergencies.

The DVAO Center was established in 2021 with grant funding from the CDC Foundation to further vaccination access and uptake for people with disabilities. The center provides training, resources and support to disability-led centers for independent living (CILs) to ensure equitable access to vaccines for people with disabilities.

The Disability Vaccine Access Opportunities Center was supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $1,325,000 with 100 percent funded by CDC/HHS.
