The outcome of this election may open doors and opportunities for much-needed progress toward racial equity, and we have put important, productive miles behind us over the past four years. But undoing years of systemic racism that impacts everyone’s health is multi-generational work. We hope you can take the time you need to recover and recommit ourselves to the fight for health, dignity and well-being.

Joint Statement on Ensuring Racial Equity in the Development and Distribution of a COVID-19 Vaccine

10.26.2020 | Health Leads

According to recent polls, only 58% of the U.S. population would get vaccinated as soon as a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available. But as millions of dollars are invested in developing a safe and effective vaccine, the development and distribution strategies proposed in the U.S. lack a clear focus on racial health equity and clear coordination among federal, state, tribal and other local levels.  We have co-created a set of guiding principles designed to ensure Black, Latinx, Native and other communities of color and those most susceptible to COVID-19 have access and opportunity to receive safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines when they become available. Sign on, share your feedback, and join the effort to build a coordinated, equity-centered COVID-19 vaccine strategy.
