Assemblymember John McDonald, Assemblymember Patricia A. Fahy & Senator Neil D. Breslin presented the Center for Disability Services with a legislative Proclamation recognizing the Center’s tireless efforts to vaccinate those with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those who support this population.
The Proclamation notes, “when COVID-19 vaccination efforts began, the Center for Disability Services stepped up as a vaccination site for the I/DD population.” CFDS “was able to streamline the registration process, making it easier for those in the I/DD population, as well as those who work with this population, to make appointments.”
“Due to the CFDS’ work on the vaccination effort, over 6,500 vaccines and counting have been given to people who need it the most in our community,” the Proclamation says.
Greg Sorrentino, President and CEO of the Center for Disability Services, said: “The Center for Disability Services has promoted, and provided, vital healthcare services for the I/DD population, and individuals with varying disabilities, for decades in a fully accessible health center. It was a natural fit for the Center to partner with the Capital Region Hub to lead the vaccination effort for this vulnerable population, so they can resume their programs and services, and continue being contributing members to our community.”
