As the roll out of the Coronavirus vaccination programme gathers pace, campaigners are calling for all people with a Learning Disability to be given priority for the jab. Figures show that people with LD are six times more likely to die from Covid 19 than the general population.

We hear from Ciara Lawrence and Harry Roache who both have mild Learning Disabilities, Byline Times writer Saba Salman, Mencap CEO Edel Harris, and Gary Bourlet, founder of Learning Disability England.

This week’s other story focusses on the plight of the 3 million self employed people excluded from the government’s Coronavirus support schemes and features Byline Times writer Mike Buckley and Keith Webb from Forgotten Limited.

Presented and Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg.
