The unprecedented coronavirus immunization campaign has begun in the U.S. The vaccine is reaching first responders and nursing homes – and soon it will go to other high priority populations. But is it reaching the communities that have borne the brunt of the epidemic, and communities that have traditionally been underserved by the health care system – Black, Latino, Native American, as well as rural areas? What are the logistical challenges – and who is overseeing to make sure the obstacles are overcome in order to reach these groups?
Join POLITICO on Thursday, January 14 at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT for a virtual deep-dive discussion on how the outgoing Trump administration has prioritized lower income, rural and communities of color in vaccine distribution plans and what the Biden administration can do to compensate for any lack of planning in these areas.
Prior to the POLITICO editorial panel conversation, the program will feature a sponsored segment with ConsejoSano founder and CEO Abner Mason and contributing health care reporter Carol Vassar.
