[T]he latest KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor finds that more than seven in ten U.S. adults (72%) now report being at least partially vaccinated, ... (71% of White adults, 70% of Black adults, and 73% of Hispanic adults). Large gaps in vaccine uptake remain by partisanship, ... (90% of Democrats saying they have gotten at least one dose compared to 68% of independents and 58% of Republicans).

"Black and Hispanic adults making up a larger share of recent vaccinations."

Blacks and Hispanics:
Slow On The Uptake, But Still Smarter than White Republicans.

Partisanship and vaccination status continue to loom large as factors in how the public views both the U.S. vaccination effort and the government's response to the pandemic in general. For example, while Democrats are most likely to see individuals refusing the COVID-19 vaccine and not taking enough precautions for the current surge in coronavirus cases, Republicans are most likely to view immigrants and tourists bringing the disease into the U.S. as a major reason for the surge.

Similarly, the top reason vaccinated adults see driving high caseloads is vaccine refusal, while the unvaccinated say the main reason is that the vaccines aren't working as well as promised. Some express anger as well, with two-thirds (65%) of Democrats and half (51%) of vaccinated adults saying the current state of the pandemic makes them angry at people who have not gotten a vaccine, and six in ten Republicans (59%) and a similar share of unvaccinated adults (56%) saying it makes them angry at the federal government.

I truly want to know why anyone - especially the unvaccinated - would be mad at the federal government for the continuing spread of the virus. Would they rather EVERYONE have remained unvaccinated and non-mitigating like the majority of them are?

This is just another example of people refusing to take responsibility for their own actions and choices while blaming everyone else but themselves for their own plight. Covid might very well have waned months ago if the unvaccinated stopped spreading the virus out of their own selfish notions of individual freedom - with little regards for the rest of the mitigating public doing their level best to avoid infection, sickness, possible hospitalization and death. But here we are, and the civic entity doing all that it can to protect its citizens bears the brunt of the scorn from those doing the least.

Anyone know what motivated Black and Latinos to have a surge in vaccinations?

If it was something we said wrote or put in the media can we do it again with republicans?

Not sure the outreach done with underserved communities would work when Billy Bob is pulling his AK on them when they knock on his door.

@#3 ... can we do it again with republicans? ...

The problem with Republicans and the vaccine is that they are actively putting into place "leadership" that is anti-vax.

...A doctor who called the COVID-19 vaccine "needle rape" made it to one of Idaho's top health boards.

Dr Ryan Cole, a pathologist with no public health experience, was championed by the GOP....

Here's a chart from another study by Johns Hopkins University and the CDC.

The higher percentage of votes for Trump per county = the higher death rate from COVID.

Remember when Covid was a blue-state problem? Via the invaluable Charles Gaba, at this point Trumpism is a death cult t.co pic.twitter.com/4AB5ekyVzg

Had trouble deciding whether to go with newsworthy or funny. Decided on funny.

Foolish enough to fall for a horrifically bad con-man like tRump and foolish enough not to protect themselves from a plague. At least they're consistent.

So long suckers!

Higher death rate by a 5-to-1 margin for the top and bottom 10% percentile groups..

It's a shame that miserable old Doors fan nulli isn't around to belt out a karaoke version of 5 to 1 in honor of the GQP death cult.

I was just thinking about Nullifidian the other day.

Always figured him for a Russian troll, or just a contrarian.

Wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Covid got him early on because he decided to go with the hoax germ-theory.

Hmmm, there are a few highly opinionated posters, who usually have a lot to say on the topic of vaccination hesitancy and resistance, missing from this thread. I wonder why. Not.

Over time, Covid will ensure the % of unvaxxed Goppers is the same as unvaxxed non-Goppers, by reducing the size of the former group.
Covid is the great equalizer.

Nulli probably would be cheering on the COVID spread if only to mitigate the world's overpopulation problem.

"Five to one, baby

This was actually on my first "band"'s playlist (we didn't have a bass player and the singer sorta sucked, but playing this was fun)

Actually, now that I think about it, we were the Doors. Except I didn't have a foot bass keyboard.
