COVID-19 vaccinations are safe to use in people with Down syndrome

Using new data from an ongoing survey of COVID-19 in people with Down syndrome aged
12 and older, the T21RS has shown that vaccines are safe to use in these individuals. Results showed that the majority experienced either no reaction or only mild symptoms.

The survey also showed that the vaccines help to protect people with Down syndrome from
developing severe COVID-19 illness.

The T21RS strongly supports vaccination prioritization and booster vaccination of people with Down syndrome
