Vaccinations for Ages 12 and Older with Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

We are happy to announce that the UC Davis MIND Institute and UC Davis Health are offering COVID-19 vaccinations for individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities ages 12 and older. 

This is a special opportunity where trained staff and life specialists will work with caregivers and their children to ensure safety and will utilize reinforcers, visuals, social stories and other supports to make the experience as comfortable as possible.   

The first clinic will be held on Friday June 18th, from 9:00am to 3:00pm at the UC Davis MIND Institute. Please review the flyer for more information about the clinic and instructions about how to schedule an appointment.
