Race and Racism are the sole cause of low vaccine rate among African AmericansThe National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF) published in the Lancet on vaccine rates in the Medicare program. Their findings were that racism is informing vaccine rates in Medicare. NMQF took into account vaccine hesitancy, social determinants of health, health literacy as possible explanations for the low rates of vaccine for blacks, and found that they were not contributing causes, which left race as the sole explanation.
