Vaccine for minorities first.

Yet, Just the News reports that 25 states will prioritize minority status perhaps over physical vulnerability in the next wave of vaccinations, after front-line workers.

[…] California, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming

Maine, in particular, has developed a ‘Racial/Ethnic Minority COVID-19 Vaccination Plan’ in an attempt to give a preference to groups that ‘have experienced rates of disease that far exceed their representation in the population as a whole’.

Michigan is using languages spoken at home as part of its triage process of who gets the COVID vaccine first.

On November 30, Just the News reported that the CDC issued more guidance underscoring the need to use race as a priority for giving the vaccine because minorities are ending up in hospitals more often than whites.

    Gee, I wonder why Texas isn’t on that list.


    • Question is why would any state allow this? The minorities are minority in all those states, I know I plan on raising a stink.
      As far as the excuse, “Minorities spend more time hospitalized”; the higher rates of drug abuse, gun violence and obesity may have something to do with that. And that is not an excuse to go to the head of the line.

    Truth be told, I wouldn’t get the vaccine anyway. Nevertheless, this ‘priority’ thing is, if nothing else, consistent with the rest of the bullshit we’ve been fed right along.
