VALLEJO, Calif. (KTVU) – As health leaders attempt to pick up the pace of vaccinations in California,
a glaring disparity has emerged from the statistics. The number of Blacks getting the vaccine is low.
When it comes to battling COVID, Lenoir said he’ll continue advocating for the underserved and leading by example.
“I was expecting, without question when this vaccination program rolled out, that the African-American community and maybe the Latino community would have special targeting to get them vaccinated regardless of age and that didn’t happen,” said Lenoir.
