How Accessible Is the Vaccination Programme For People with Visual Impairments?

You’ve probably started seeing a number of people around you getting their COVID-19 vaccines. But as more people get their appointments, the question arises if the vaccination process - from registering for the vaccine to getting the vaccine in your arm - is sufficiently accessible for people with disabilities or people who are differently abled. We speak to Moses Choo, consultant for the National Council For The Blind to find out what the process has been like for people with visual impairments, and what can be done better to ensure that no one is left behind in the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.
