Race Bias COVID Vaccination South Florida

Of the roughly 138,000 people who have gotten the vaccines in Miami-Dade, just 8,265 — or 6% — identified as Black, according to the latest state data, released Thursday. Excluding the 19,200 or so people who were marked as “unknown” race, that’s still just 7% of the total, compared to the overall portion of Miami-Dade that is black — 16.7%, according to U.S. Census data.

While this evidence refers to South Florida (Miami-Dade and Broward Counties) certainly the same pattern will be throughout the State of Florida. There is no evidence that that Governor or other State authorities have recognized the problem or have taken remedial action.
