Los Angeles Times: Despite obstacles, Native Americans have the nation’s highest COVID-19 vaccination rate

Los Angeles Times: Despite obstacles, Native Americans have the nation’s highest COVID-19 vaccination rate. “It’s not just the Fort Belknap reservation that has managed to protect itself. Experts say Native Americans have a higher vaccination rate than any other major racial or ethnic group. Those rates are difficult to determine, because many vaccine recipients do not provide their race or ethnicity when they get shots. But more than 100 million have done so. That data — collected by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — suggest that Native Americans are 24% more likely than whites to be fully vaccinated, 31% more likely than Latinos, 64% more likely than African Americans and 11% more likely than Asian Americans.”
