Covid vaccines & people with Down Syndrome

We are sharing the following information provided to us by the Canadian Down Syndrome Society (CDSS). CDSS represents Canada at the Trisomy 21 Research Society (T21RS) Taskforce Meetings. T21RS has organized an international online survey to collect data about COVID-19 vaccine response among people with Down syndrome. If the survey is applicable to you, please consider taking the time to fill it out. The more responses they receive, the better the data will be.


We need your help! More needs to be learned about COVID-19 and the related vaccine among people with Down syndrome. The Trisomy 21 Research Society (T21RS) has organized an international online survey to collect this information.


You are invited to complete this survey, if you are a caregiver of a person with Down syndrome who has received the COVID-19 vaccine or who is eligible but does not plan to receive the vaccine.


The on-line survey:

  • takes about 15-30 minutes to complete
  • responses cannot be linked back to you (anonymous)
  • questions ask about the person’s health, COVID-19, and responses to the vaccine


Please click on the following link to complete the survey in the language of your choice:

German: https://is.gd/Ger_care

Italian: https://is.gd/Itl_care

Portuguese: https://is.gd/Port_care

Thank you for your help to collect this important information for people with Down syndrome.
