COVID 19: Why are Black Americans lagging in vaccination rates? | USA TODAY

Less than a quarter of Black Americans are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to CDC data from mid-July.

Black Americans are hospitalized with COVID-19 at 2.9 times the rate of white Americans and die at two times the rate, according to CDC data. Latinos are hospitalized at 2.8 times the rate and die at 2.3 times the rate of white Americans. Native Americans are hospitalized at 3.3 times the rate and die at 2.4 times the rate.

I regret that time when I was first introduced to trouble. Some trouble I can’t prevent. It just happens, and no matter what I do, trouble is in the room.
