Coronavirus vaccines are now available to all NDIS participants over 16 years old.

The Australian Government has released a plan to vaccinate people with disability, their families and carers, to access the vaccine safely.

People can register for the COVID-19 vaccine at a Queensland Health vaccination location.

People with disability, their families, carers and aged care workers and people aged 40-49 years can also register for the vaccine as part of the next stage of the rollout.

Almost 40,500 NDIS participants (16%) across Australia have received at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 7800 NDIS participants in group homes and aged care settings have received at least one jab.

The vaccine rollout will happen in five stages with people at higher risk of COVID-19 will be able to get the vaccine early.

Every hospital and health service in Queensland will be providing vaccinations. Vaccination hubs offer vaccines by invitation, to eligible health care workers and other critical and high-risk workers.

The Queensland and Commonwealth Government are working with disability residential accommodation to administer the vaccine in these settings.
