Questions about accessibility

 

Are all of the vaccination sites accessible for wheelchair users and people with disabilities?

Yes. All of our local GP-led vaccination sites are fully accessible.

 

What provisions are being made for patients with communication needs?

All of our local vaccination centres are fully accessible, and should be able to provide hearing loops.

Additional support can also be provided, but it’s important to make sure that your GP practice has a note of any communication needs so that this is in your records.

If you need any extra support to be put in place for your vaccine appointment, you should also make staff aware when you book your appointment so that they can arrange this in advance.  

 

Is any support available for people who might find it difficult to travel to a local vaccination clinic?

People who are clinically extremely vulnerable (advised to shield during lockdowns) who need help to get to a local vaccination centre, may be able to get a free taxi.

When you have booked your appointment, if you need help to get there, please call the Liverpool City Council COVID Advice Line on freephone 0800 169 3032.

However, we would ask that people to make every effort to attend a clinic with support from family or friends first.
