Black and Latino Americans are receiving the Covid-19 vaccine at significantly lower rates than White people

The figures are even more concerning because Black and Latino Americans are already dying of Covid-19 at three times the rate of White people and being hospitalized at a rate four times higher, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Black and Latino Americans are receiving the Covid-19 vaccine at significantly lower rates than White people — a disparity that health advocates blame on the failure by the US federal government and hospitals to prioritize equitable access.

“We are going to make sure there are vaccination centers in communities hit hardest by the pandemic, in Black and Latino communities and rural communities as well,” Biden said.
