Disability and Youth Services

Considering your vaccine options? We can help.

NDIS participants are a priority group for access to COVID -19 vaccination in Australia. Vaccination against COVID-19 is particularly important for people with disability, many of whom are at greater risk of severe illness arising from a COVID-19 infection, suffering long-term impacts due to pre-existing health conditions. The COVID-19 vaccine is voluntary and free.

All NDIS participants over 12 years of age are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, as are their carers and support workers. We understand that people with disability and their families are concerned about what it will mean for them when restrictions across the country ease.
