Study finds race gap in people getting booster shots
A new study finds young people of color are not getting COVID vaccine booster shots at the same rate as young white people.
It’s an issue that’s alarming federal health authorities.
According to the CDC, only 30% of Blacks and 37% of Hispanics who are 18-49 years old are fully vaccinated and boosted. That’s compared to nearly half of whites in that age group.
Among people 65 and older, the gaps among demographic groups are much smaller.
In an attempt to close the gap, the Biden Administration plans to turn to churches and community health centers for help.
