Project ALIVE: Arkansas CIL Trainings
Project ALIVE (Accessible Life-saving Integrated Vaccine Equity) is a short-term focused effort to remove barriers to COVID-19 vaccinations for people with disabilities living in the rural areas of Missouri, Arkansas, and Montana. Rooted in the values of self-determination and self-direction, the project does not seek to persuade or convince, but will serve as a resource for those who want the vaccine and those seeking further information in order to make an informed decision.
By the end of the training, you will be familiar with:
- Some of the legal rights of disabled people during the vaccination process
- The Vaccine Site Checklist
- Ways to reduce trauma for disabled vaccine recipients
Presenter: Melissa Marshall, JD (she/her)
By the end of this presentation, you will be able to:
- Understand some causes of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and how to respond
- Identify barriers to accessing COVID-19 vaccines (primary series and booster) and know how to respond
Presenter: Regina S. Dyton (she/her)
