As a person with a disability, how can I protect myself from COVID-19 variants?
The best way for people with disabilities to protect themselves from COVID-19 variants is by getting a vaccine. A vaccine may not stop you from getting sick, but it will help lower the risk that you will get very sick and go to the hospital with a COVID-19 variant.
If you have already gotten your vaccine, getting a booster shot is another way you can help protect yourself from COVID-19 variants. This makes your immune system stronger to fight the virus. Learn more about booster shots from our previous e-newsletter.
Talk to your doctor, or another medical provider you trust, about which COVID-19 vaccine is the best for you. If you need help scheduling your vaccine, have questions, or are experiencing difficulty with getting your vaccine, you can call the SC Disability Vaccine Access Hotline (1-800-787-6046).
