The COVID Vaccine Rollout Is Leaving Black People Behind

Latinos, who make up 29% of the city’s population, have received 15% of the vaccines where racial data was reported. (The city said data was missing for 40% of those who’ve received the vaccine.) In Philadelphia, fewer than 15% vaccinated are Black despite Black Philadelphians being 40% of the city’s residents over the age of 75 and 45% of healthcare workers. White people make up 68% of the population but 82% of those who’ve received a first dose. In a Pew survey published shortly before the beginning of the vaccine rollout, fewer than half of Black American adults said they would get a vaccine if it were available.
