DSAT would like to issue the following statement on Individuals with Down Syndrome not being prioritized for Vaccine.

As some of you are aware there has been recent media highlighting the scientific evidence that those with Trisomy 21 have an increased vulnerability to Covid-19. The choice and right to have the vaccine as soon as possible should be made available to those with development disabilities, and currently they are not mentioned or given any priority on the government roll out list. DSAT has written to both municipal and provincial government health departments requesting that Individuals with Down Syndrome be prioritized, in addition to offering support to any initiatives CDSS have taken on a federal level.
Additionally, if you would like to make your voice heard on this matter, please support the growing public READYFORMYSHOT campaign here: https://www.readyformyshot.ca/
