Near the end of the course, the use of sedation is floated for individuals with disabilities who are “highly anxious” and opposed to receiving needles.

The following question is posed on slide 29 (view slide here): “What about the use of sedation?”

Notes beneath the slide indicate that sedation can be used. There is no mention of obtaining consent.

“If people regularly need sedation for procedures, this may be considered for the vaccine,” the notes state.
