Prioritizing Equity In COVID-19 Vaccinations

As vaccine availability increases and eligibility expands to meet the goal of vaccinating as many individuals as quickly as possible, prioritizing equity along with speed will be essential to ensuring access to and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines across all populations. In this brief, we highlight state-level strategies that aim to improve reporting of race and ethnicity data in vaccine distribution, use data to plan for allocation and distribution according to need, overcome systemic inequities that lead to differential access to COVID-19 vaccinations, and build trust in COVID-19 vaccines and COVID-19 vaccination processes.
