We understand that decisions about vaccine priority are being made, in part, based on input from advisory groups and disability organizations. However, we are aware that little data has been collected around how COVID-19 affects disabled people as a demographic. In addition, we are concerned that the quality of data that is available and being used to support these recommendations is of poor quality, and may in fact be of little value.
BCEdAccess joins disabled people and their families around the province as well as organizations like Inclusion BC, Family Support Institute of BC in seeking a complete ban on restraint and seclusion.
