But the group said local leaders should also give priority to vulnerable communities. Following a review of the group’s draft report released last month, it additionally did not mention minority communities that have been severely affected by the epidemic.
At each stage of vaccination, the panel recommends that authorities prioritize people in high-risk areas identified by a tool such as the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Code. The panel says the code uses U.S. census variables to identify communities in need of disaster support, which consider factors that put ethnic minorities at high risk for Govt-19.
The third phase proposes to vaccinate young people, children and those in occupations where people can get some protection, but there is a risk of exposure such as banks and universities.
The final stage involves anyone who has not yet been vaccinated.
