The Governor out there is allocating the limited number of vaccines on a race basis (in part).


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will begin sending 40% of all vaccine doses to the most vulnerable neighborhoods in the state to try to inoculate people most at risk from the coronavirus and get the state’s economy open more quickly, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday in the latest shake-up to the state’s rules.

The doses will be spread among 400 ZIP codes where there are about 8 million people eligible for shots, said Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state’s health and human services secretary. Many of the neighborhoods are in Los Angeles County and the central valley, which have had among the highest rates of infection.

We've all seen the vaccination sites at Dodger Stadium. Why not just take all of the doses that you're targeting to the zip codes down there and send them to Dodger Stadium?

Its disappointing especially given that a lot of minorities are deciding not to get the vaccine...

Just an unforced error by the government out there. All they had to say was "we're opening more distribution sites". Seemed easy enough. But they have to couch their efforts in race availability.

Stupid.

In a Republic, actually
Difficult to see how it’s ‘systematic racism’ when “race and ethnicity are not explicit factors in designating vaccinations…” ibid

Otherwise, the only other option is to allow underserved communities to fall further behind with vaccinations – communities intentionally ignored that have “higher populations of Blacks, Latinos and Asian and Pacific Islanders.” supra

Neglecting minority communities would be a more accurate example of systematic racism.

This must have been a mistake then....

"Tying reopening to vaccination equity metrics was cheered by representatives of the legislative Black and Latino caucuses, as well as social justice and equity groups. Latinos make up roughly half of cases and deaths in California even though they are 39% of the population."

Usually the cheering isn't coming from these groups.

it has to do with death per capita in each of the races

.

Democrats have always been about vote buying, but this time it's going to cost lives.

In our state and most others, we are vaccinating people based on age and not race. Our most elderly got the option first and we are lowering the age requirements as more people get vaccinated. Healthcare workers were right on top of the list with the most elderly. As a person with serious health conditions if I catch this thing, I get to get ahead of the line as well, but haven't yet. I'm seriously considering it though after I get another health issue resolved which will hopefully be next week.

As a white boy married into a black family I can see what is going on. Funny thing is the black family makes way more money than almost all the white folks I know.

Not to fear. How he's handled this pandemic is why they are going to have a recall vote to get him out of there.

I don't know what makes you think that. All the businesses that lost money or forced to close up. Pissed off parents who had to quit their badly needed job to stay home with their children because the schools were closed up. All those younger socialites who loved their bars and restaurants. I just don't see how he couldn't get recalled. You can't piss off millions of people and expect them to support you.
