Inclusion in Health Services - video
Inclusion in health services was incredibly important during the pandemic to ensure vaccinations are available to anyone who wants them.
Canberra's Access and Sensory Vaccination Clinic was designed in consultation with people with disability and is available to anyone who would benefit from:
- a quieter environment
- additional space
- longer appointment time
- carer assistance
This includes people with disability, people with mobility limitations, and people with mental health conditions.
"It was one of the first times in public since the start of the pandemic where I felt that my different existance was completely ordinary... It made me feel like a person, which was fantastic," said Diversity and Inclusion leader, Ashlea McKay.
