Inland communities of color receiving vaccinations at slower rate, data shows

By Deepa Bharath |

As vaccines for COVID-19 continue to roll out across the country, communities of color continue to experience vaccine disparities. 

CSI UCR Director, Karthick Ramakrishnan stated, "The percentage of Latinos who have been getting vaccinated in Riverside County has been going down steadily in recent weeks, especially after the state said only those 65 and older can be vaccinated"

In an effort to address the situation, several community partners collaborated to launch the Inland Empire Media Roundtable.
