Problem: COVID-19 vaccine distribution has fallen short of equitably reaching communities of color and residents most at-risk of contracting the virus.

Solution: Vital partnerships between cities and health departments are vital to provide accurate information, to expand access points for vaccine administration and to build public confidence.
