As noted in previous analysis, preventing racial disparities in the uptake of COVID-19 vaccines is important to mitigate the disproportionate impacts of the virus for people of color and prevent widening racial health disparities going forward. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has indicated that vaccine equity is an important goal and defined equity as preferential access and administration to those who have been most affected by COVID-19. Moreover, reaching high vaccination rates across individuals and communities will be key for achieving broader population immunity through a vaccine.
