COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility in the Down Syndrome Community

360 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

The CDC has recently added Down syndrome to the list of those most at-risk of complications from COVID-19. Recent studies have highlighted the rate of death from COVID-19 amongst the Down syndrome population is being 10x higher than that of people without Down syndrome. As a result, many states, such as California, have bumped up the vaccination priority for families and parent caregivers to the highest tier. But Michigan is behind and here we are left to wait with the general population. I am requesting that families and parent caregivers be pushed up in the schedule to mitigate risks for our most vulnerable. Thank you.
