How do we get back to real life?

April 5, 2021

This pandemic has felt like the longest year ever – for ourselves, for our patients, for their loved ones. The most common question I hear now is how do we get out of this. I try to stay on top of information about vaccination programs because I believe vaccination and use of safe strategies in the community is the way we try to get out of this. It is because of that that I am excited to tell everyone about an event occurring this weekend to vaccinate our disability community. Ability 360 along with their community partners is offering vaccinations Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11 targeting our community and their caregivers. This is finally our chance. This is not going along in the car hoping someone will vaccinate you as a plus 1. This is an event for people with a disability. Please call and schedule an appointment. If there is an overwhelming response that is the only way we can justify more of these clinics.

This doesn’t mean there won’t be fear the first time your young adult goes back to a day program or you go out to a community setting as a family. But it does mean we can hope for a little normalcy in the future.
