OC Works to Address COVID-19 Vaccination Disparities

Orange County has struck up partnerships within coronavirus hotspots to increase vaccination efforts for at-risk populations.
The effort focuses on Anaheim and Santa Ana to increase accessibility for latinos, a demographic that has a greater risk of dying from the virus, according to the OC Health Care Agency.
This demographic has also proved to be less likely to opt in for the vaccine, HCA data shows.
The county has made partnerships with organizations like Santa Ana Unified School District, Latino Health Access and AltaMed to create more awareness around the vaccine and fill slots at vaccination sites.
The region has quickened its vaccination pace in recent weeks; it had administered about 532,537 coronavirus vaccine doses to date, according to the California Department of Public Health.
