#Vaccine Ready is the theme of this month’s National Minority Health Month, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health. During the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native communities, making access to the COVID-19 vaccine even more critical for those communities.
