Equity in COVID-19 Vaccines: Emerging Lessons from the Front Lines

COVID-19 exposed the problems with our health system, and it has shown what needs to change. As our nation recovers from the pandemic, we must build a “new normal” that prioritizes the communities hit hardest by the pandemic, centers equity in vaccine distribution, and addresses deep-rooted racial inequities. To this end, Families USA has developed a roadmap of promising approaches for equitable distribution of vaccines in the short term, based on input from state and local partners. The roadmap synthesizes early lessons and provides key insights and concrete approaches that state partners and leaders can use moving forward. This roadmap is the first step in a new initiative that Families USA will undertake with partner organizations to ensure the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and build momentum to take on deep-rooted inequities.
