In December 2020 SCLD issued a statement in regard to human rights concerns over the prioritisation of people with learning/intellectual disabilities in the COVID-19 vaccination rollout.
In view of the recent publication of research, and from our own dialogue with people with learning/intellectual disabilities and the organisations who support them, we have issued an updated statement on the necessity of mitigating existing health inequalities in the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Scotland.
