We are joining forces with Mencap to ask the government to prioritise people with a Learning Disability to be put in at least group 6 of the Vaccination priority list.
You can get involved too by writing to your MP.
Mencap has made this even easier by following this link you can see a draft letter and find out your MP it also gives you all the facts you will need about this issue.
Here are some facts:
- People with a learning disability are SIX times more likely to die because of Coronavirus. (Public Health England 2020)
- The death rate for people with a learning disability is THIRTY times higher than that of the general public. (Public Health England 2020)
