Low vaccine booster rate blamed for COVID-19 deaths
An analysis by the Associated Press shows low vaccine booster rates are now a key factor in COVID-19 deaths.
The New Yorker Magazine did a documentary last year focusing on the rural Alabama town of Panola. Community leader Dorothy Oliver worked to promote COVID-19 vaccinations with little to no support from the government.
An Associated Press analysis shows more than 450 people are dying of COVID-19 per day.
A recent study of coronavirus booster rates found that up to 52 percent of white and Asian American adult got boosters by January of 2022. But only a third of Black adults and other ethnicities like American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander got follow-up COVID shots.
