Opinion: LeBrón: learning from COVID-19 vaccine equity missteps, keys to COVID-19 vaccine equity for Orange County’s 5-11 year old children

Alana M.W. LeBrón, Ph.D., UCI assistant professor of Chicano/Latino studies and assistant professor, public health writes, “I implore my fellow public health leaders to turn a new page in the COVID-19 pandemic and apply the lessons learned from inequities in COVID testing and vaccines by working in partnership with and adequately funding trusted local community institutions to guide the design of local vaccine implementation efforts for our youngest children. This is the moment we have been waiting for – let’s do it right, let’s do it equitably.”
