How to support people with learning disabilities to get vaccinated
Vaccinations against COVID-19 are not mandatory and where people can give or refuse consent we have a responsibility to ensure consent is sought. Many people with learning disabilities will be unable to consent, but others will be able to consent if given the right support. Nurses, carers and families should begin planning as soon as possible, so they are prepared when the invitation to receive the vaccine arrives.
