Areas hardest hit by COVID-19 in LA County are least likely to be vaccinated

In the push to inoculate as many people as possible with a limited supply of coronavirus vaccine, public health officials in Los Angeles County have noticed a disturbing trend they say is indicative of the coronavirus pandemic overall and the health care system in general. Those in communities hit hardest by the coronavirus were now the least likely to be vaccinated, and those disparities fell largely along both economic and racial lines. Among the top 10 communities with the highest rates of co...
