ABSTRACT

COVID-19: Federal Efforts to Provide Vaccines to Racial and Ethnic Groups, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] continues to have devastating effects on public health, serious economic repercussions, and has disproportionately affected some racial and ethnic groups. Ensuring all racial and ethnic groups have fair access to the COVID-19 vaccine is critical to reducing severe COVID-19 health outcomes and saving lives. The CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act includes a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to report on its ongoing oversight efforts related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This report describes, among other things, the actions CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], HRSA [Health Resources and Services Administration], and FEMA have taken through their programs to provide COVID-19 vaccines to underserved and historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups, and the extent to which these programs vaccinated various racial and ethnic groups."
