Connections COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance Program Offers Assistance

Weld County, CO, January 21, 2021 –  Residents of northeastern Colorado who live with disabilities may find the process to register and schedule vaccinations for the COVID-19 virus to be challenging to complete. To provide guidance and assistance in this process, Connections for Independent Living has launched a free vaccine assistance program.

Many healthcare companies and organizations charged with the task of distributing the free vaccine have created waiting lists for interested persons. Health centers are primarily using online methods to schedule vaccination appointments.

Recognizing the challenges associated with online access to many persons with disabilities, Connections’ Independent Living Services team is available to provide guidance to consumers regarding the vaccination process. Team members adhere to strict confidentiality agreements and all staff are subjected to background checks to assure safety of personal information. Team members from the Greeley nonprofit can immediately assist in registering and scheduling the vaccination. Free transportation to and from vaccine appointments can also be arranged.

Individuals who have an interest in receiving assistance from Connections are invited to call (970) 352-8682 weekdays during standard business hours to arrange a consultation. Like most services at Connections, this appointment is provided at no cost to qualifying area residents.

Connections for Independent Living is a non-residential, participant-controlled nonprofit Independent Living Center that promotes independent living and the empowerment of all persons with disabilities. The organization is one of nine certified Independent Living Centers throughout Colorado.
