    Hi @Queenofdisabilities

    The Access Card is a card designed so that disabled people have something to identify their disability to others. It has numerous symbols on the bottom and if you are visually impaired for example, your card will have the symbol which indicates you will find seeing things difficult. It has similar symbols for most kinds of impairment.

    Yellow Card is a scheme designed for people to:
    "Report suspected side effects to medicines, vaccines or medical device and diagnostic adverse incidents used in coronavirus treatment to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to ensure safe and effective use"
