LISTEN: Outreach Expert On 'Woefully Low' Vaccination Rates In Communities Of Color

Joe Amon

Gov. Ned Lamont’s decision to move to a purely age-based schedule for COVID-19 vaccine distribution has critics wondering how equitable that is for underserved communities. Also, it's been said frequently of late that people of color aren't getting the vaccine out of fear and mistrust. To talk about these issues, Camelo Communication founder Wilson Camelo joined All Things Considered. Camelo Communication is the Hispanic marketing agency for Hartford HealthCare.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
