About Project ACCESS
Project ACCESS (All Communities Count Equitably for Safety and Support) is DRNC’s statewide COVID-19 vaccine initiative to increase access to vaccines for people with disabilities, including age-related disabilities. This project is made possible with financial support from USAging.
DRNC is working with partnerships across the aging and disability networks to host community vaccine clinics, provide in-home vaccinations, provide transportation to vaccination sites, conduct outreach and education to older adults and disabled people, and more.
By working with others in the community, we seek to provide vaccine access to children, older adults and people with disabilities to communities in NC with low COVID vaccination rates and/or underserved populations.

“We want to make sure that equity is baked into all aspects of vaccine distribution so that underserved and marginalized communities are able to access the vaccines and accurate information about them,” said Iris Green, DRNC’s director of constituent services.
