We're doing our best to get rid of any inequalities as soon as we see them...Dr. Anthony Fauci


On Wednesday, the CDC released its findings on the first two and a half months of the nation's vaccination program. A team of researchers investigated the link between assessments of coverage of COVID-19, which shows people who have obtained at least one dose of the vaccine between December and March, and county Social Insecurity Index rankings.


The index uses 15 separate indicators under the key headings of poverty, demographics, and race to take all factors into consideration. This method has been proposed as a resource to emergencies, stated in a study of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.


Nationally, the new report shows, vaccine coverage was achieved for 13.9% of people in counties with high social vulnerability, compared with 15.8% in counties with low social vulnerability. This indicates that the bulk of kids (nearly 3 out of 4) have obtained the first-dose vaccine. The study analyzed approximately 49 million residents of 49 states and DC, representing almost half the nation's population.


There was the biggest gap between counties by social class to poverty, the number of individuals who have a high school diploma, or an income standard of annual income below poverty on the measure. Vaccination coverage was 1.5 points greater in low-risk areas than in high-risk areas.


Also, the study showed an encouraging correlation between measures of English proficiency and insecurity in vulnerable groups for both; at the same time, they designated individuals as "less competent."


The report also noticed greater car mobility in smaller jurisdictions where a lower number of households held cars, to be further studied, and in larger jurisdictions with a significant proportion of older people.


Specifically, the study shows that achieving parity in vaccine coverage among those who are most deeply impacted by CO19, such as "communities with a large racial and ethnic minority populations and those experiencing socioeconomic disparities in coverage," is critically important. It is a job for public health authorities to figure out what inequalities are due to access problems or other difficulties, such as vaccine hesitancy.


With the publication of this study, it can be shown that states that have been highly successful in getting high levels of vaccine equity coverage have: began by putting patients of color, children, adolescents, and the elderly at the forefront; monitored and reacted to barriers to vaccine delivery; were highly willing to serve vulnerable populations and treated all fairly; included free transportation; and collaborated with health organizations, tribal governments, and the Indian Health Service. Unlike several other nations, Alaska has an above-average vaccination record since it has partnered together with its Native American tribes and Indian Health Service to make sure its people are vaccinated.


Also, reported discrepancies may be due to each state's reality centered on a different demographic, such as seniors and health employees, during their vaccination campaigns. In the United States, while vaccination provision is meant to protect all individuals over seventeen, all the vaccinations used actually are not mandated for use.


The  Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci has reported that the administration is working very hard to extend access to these vaccinations to the underserved communities.


"In other words, we're doing our best to get rid of any inequalities as soon as we see them."
