Autism Vaccination Support

Extra support to ease any anxiety of disabled and autistic people wanting to get vaccinated for COVID-19 is now available, thanks to a partnership between Explore and the Ministry of Health.

Many, including disabled and autistic people, may show signs of anxiety and distress when it comes to injections and needles; now a range of support is available to help alleviate their fears.

This ranges from online learning tools for carers and whānau, to one-on-one telehealth support via phone and video conferencing for disabled and autistic people, their families, and their support people.
