Communities that were vulnerable before the pandemic only became more vulnerable as COVID raged. African Americans and Hispanics bore a disproportionate brunt of COVID-related hospitalizations and deaths and these groups continue to be less likely to get vaccinated than their white counterparts. Outside of the U.S., vaccination rates linger under 10 percent for at least 50 countries, and are closer to 2 percent in some of the poorest nations.
With vaccination rates woefully short of the 70 percent threshold most experts say is necessary to reach herd immunity, ongoing viral transmission provides more opportunities for dangerous variants like Delta to evolve. The disparities in public health are not simply a problem for low-income and minority communities—they will continue to allow COVID to thrive and give rise to future pandemics unless we resolve them now.
The health-care industry is taking notice. “The last year-and-a-half has really been sort of a defining moment for us,” Sanjay Shetty, the president of Steward Health Care System, said Wednesday at the Race to Save World virtual webinar, hosted by The Daily Beast in partnership with Pfizer. Shetty and his fellow panelists explained that a huge problem that exacerbated the pandemic from its earliest days was the fact that in many underserved communities, the lack of access to a trusted healthcare provider simply meant many people didn’t know where to go if they felt sick.
