With the addition of “new eligible conditions” last week by the CDC and Massachusetts Public Health, we are asking all of you to consider if you or your family member qualifies for earlier vaccine based on the category “Dementia or other neurological condition.”
The “other neurological condition” should be used if in fact you or your family member have been diagnosed with a neurological condition – as is the case with many persons with a physical, developmental, or intellectual disability. As many of you know, “Down syndrome” has been included for weeks as an eligible condition, but we repeat here to make sure you are aware of that fact.
Please make sure that you’ve pre-registered and include the relevant eligible condition. Additionally, all Massachusetts residents, 16 and older, will be eligible as of April 19.
