In an effort to allow those with high-risk medical conditions to jump the COVID vaccine line, advocates say the state may have pushed people in vulnerable communities to the back of the line.
Kenyatta Thompson, director of organizing for the Katal Center for Equity, Health, and Justice, said the state’s shift from a strictly age-based rollout is a “step in the right direction,” but how high-risk patients will be identified is a question she said needs to be answered.
