The Indonesian Ministry of Health is at the forefront of delivering the latest information related to the development of Covid-19 to reach all levels of society using mass media and social media. For social media, the Instagram @kemenkes_ri account is one of the social media which actively delivers Covid-19 information. This study aims to determine the fulfillment of the right to obtain Covid-19 information for people with disabilities through the @kemenkes_ri Instagram account. This study uses a qualitative approach by conducting discourse analysis and netnography methods for confirmation of people with disabilities. The results of this study show, the information posted on Instagram @kemenkesi_ri is not yet fully accessible and cannot be easily understood by people with disabilities since numerous content did not use subtitles or sign language to help the hearing impaired. Then it was found that there were contents which only displayed the visuals but did not have any audio so it was impossible for the sight impaired to understand and access it, and various other unaffable information conveyed through the instagram account @ kemenkes_ri.
