We previously reported that New York City’s official website has a plan to prioritize distributing vaccine to minorities over whites. Now it is reported that the State will also prioritize black and Hispanic populations.
According to Daily Mail, “25 states have committed to a focus on racial and ethnic communities as they decided which groups should be prioritized in receiving a coronavirus vaccine dose.” Among those 25 states is New York.
According to the official statistics, some populations such as African-Americans, Hispanics and Hasidic Jews have higher than average rates of coronavirus infection. The government of the State and City of New York adopted different approaches for these communities, prioritizing the first two for vaccines, while choosing punishment, fines, more strict lockdowns and nationwide public shaming as a means of dealing with the health crisis among the Orthodox Jews.
