The state is now reporting data on race and the COVID-19 vaccine in an effort to help track equity when it comes to protection from the virus. "We've had vaccine administration at local churches and it turns out that the people in fact who are receiving the vaccine are not members of that church, they're not necessarily even residents in the community where the church is located," Dr. Debra Furr-Holden said. “More demographic data for respective communities is needed to ensure equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.”
