Not a lot of help, but here is advice from the CDC:
And from the ODPEM (Jamaica):
This is an interesting study:
Here is some good information from CA:
One reason to NOT get into a doorway is that in a moderate earthquake, the door may slam shut on you, which can also cause serious injury, esp. if you try to brace yourself by holding onto the door jam. AB people are not advised to get into doorways due to the high rate of structural failure of door frames in a building collapse, so I question the advice the PWD in wheelchairs locate themselves there.
An inside corner appears to be much safer. Also, if you can, throw yourself onto the floor from your chair. You are likely much safer there than with your head higher than surrounding sturdy furniture or equipment.
