卡梅尔·塞普洛尼说:”接种疫苗是保护自己和社区的最佳方式,我们希望所有新西兰人得到正确的支持,以完成这项工作。这就是为什么我们一直与残疾人部门和社区、残疾问题办公室、卫生部和多氯联苯合作,开发服务和信息,确保残疾人了解其在疫苗方案中的资格。决定是否接种疫苗、寻找最合适的接种地点以及如果您需要交通工具,应联系谁,这些都是旅程中通常会影响残疾人体验的关键部分,以这使得他们在这个过程更容易。 新西兰认为有残疾或有智障的人有四分之一。截至10月27日,在卫生部残疾人支持服务机构支持的30,522人中,82%的人已经接种了第一剂,67%的人已完全接种疫苗。疫苗接种方案旨在使所有新西兰人都能包容和接触,使所有人都有机会和进入疫苗接种地点。卫生署和当地提供者真正致力于为残疾人提供正确的疫苗接种,以确保满足他们能够在当地所需求的方式获得疫苗。 我们将继续保持这一势头,在团结起来反对艾滋病毒/艾滋病- 19 网站上推出一个专门针对残疾人的部分,该网站将每周更新超级无障碍网站和中心,供残疾人在全国各地接种疫苗。 联合反对COVID-19网站还将包含专门针对残疾人和有基本健康状况的人的综合信息,例如支持决策、您附近的无障碍疫苗接种中心列表、安排其他格式的交通和信息”。

Government accelerates efforts to support disabled peoples vaccination experiences
 
·       Launch of ‘The Manaakitanga Journey’ tool to help disabled people get vaccinated against COVID-19
·       A one-stop shop online containing COVID-19 information, with accessible format considerations, and locations of Super Accessible Vaccination sites.
 
A new tool that supports disabled people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 was launched today as the country gets closer to reaching the 90 percent vaccination milestone, Minister for Disability Issues Carmel Sepuloni announced.
 
The Manaakitanga Journey is a graphic online tool that packages up key information on the Unite Against COVID-19 website such as how to book New Zealand Sign Language interpreters at clinics, and how to arrange transport to and from your vaccination appointment.
 
“Getting a vaccination is the best thing you can do to protect yourself and your community – and we want all New Zealanders to have the right support to get the job done,” Carmel Sepuloni said.
 
“That’s why we’ve been working with the disability sector and community, Office for Disability Issues, the Ministry of Health and DHBs to develop services and information that ensures disabled people are aware of their eligibility in the vaccine programme.
 
“Deciding whether to be vaccinated, finding the most appropriate site and place to be vaccinated at and who to contact if you need transport, are all key parts of the journey that can often affect disabled people’s experiences. This makes that process easier,”
 
One in four New Zealanders identify as disabled or having an impairment. As of the 27th of October, of the 30,522 people supported by the Ministry of Health’s Disability Supports Services nationwide, 82 percent have had their first dose, and 67 percent have been fully vaccinated.
 
“The vaccination programme aims to be inclusive and accessible to all New Zealanders so that all people have the opportunity and access to a vaccination site. DHBs and local providers are really committed to getting it right for disabled people to ensure they can access the vaccine in a way that meets their needs in their local area.
 
“We’re continuing that momentum with the launch of a disability-specific part of the Unite Against COVID-19 website, which will be updated weekly with Super Accessible sites and centres for disabled people to get vaccinated at across the motu.
 
The Unite Against COVID-19 website will also contain consolidated information specifically for disabled people and those who have underlying health conditions, such as supported decision making, a list of accessible vaccination centres near you, arranging transport and information in alternative formats.
 
“I believe The Manaakitanga Journey captures the essence and importance of removing barriers to vaccination for disabled people, making it more accessible and inclusive, and as we continue to protect and look out for all New Zealanders,” Carmel Sepuloni said.
 
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will visit the Hutt Valley COVID-19 Community Vaccination Centre at 1:30pm today, to support their work as a super accessible clinic for disabled New Zealanders.
