On February 19, the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis held a video briefing on ensuring equity in coronavirus vaccinations. In a press release, the Subcommittee identified the following takeaways from the briefing: (1) The Trump Administration’s failure to plan for vaccine distribution increased risks to vulnerable populations and jeopardized the nation’s recovery; (2) We must address barriers to vaccinations faced by communities of color, low-income communities, and rural communities; (3) Community health providers need more resources to vaccinate vulnerable communities; (4) More outreach and education is needed to combat vaccine hesitancy and misinformation in communities across the United States; (5) Inadequate data on race and ethnicity must be addressed to ensure equitable vaccine access; and (6) Briefers praised President Biden’s national vaccine strategy and called for passage of the American Rescue Plan.
