COVID-19 VACCINE: Person with disabilities express worry over alleged exclusion

Person with disabilities, under the auspices of Centre for Citizens with Disabilities, (CCD), has expressed worry over alleged exclusion from priority groups that would first be administered with the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a statement signed yesterday by Executive Director, CDD, DAVID ANYAELE, stated that persons with disabilities are susceptible to contact COVID-19 infection compared to able-bodied persons, hence should be considered first for the vaccine.

The statement noted that no one should be left behind in the distribution and administration of Covid-19 vaccination by reason of his or her disability.
