While 46 percent of white Americans have received at least one COVID vaccine shot by now, only 33 percent of black Americans have done the same, according to the federal data available as of June 21 and analyzed most recently by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).

This means that, under the “disparate impact” standard now used to convict a workplace of racial discrimination under federal regulations and to accuse the United States of “systemic racism,” any use of vaccine status to reward or punish employees or citizens also comprises systemic racism. So, for example, using COVID vaccination status to determine who may get tickets to public events or requiring people to be vaccinated to keep their jobs will turn away larger percentages of black Americans than of white Americans.

“Overall, across these 40 states, the percent of White people who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose (46%) was roughly 1.4 times higher than the rate for Black people (33%) and 1.2 times higher than the rate for Hispanic people (38%) as of June 21, 2021,” KFF reports. In some states, the racial imbalance was even higher.

“White people had a higher vaccination rate compared to Hispanic people in all reporting states, except Virginia, Vermont, and Missouri, and a higher rate than Black people in every reporting state, except Oregon, Alaska, and Idaho,” KFF notes.

In New York, 51 percent of white people and 35 percent of black people have gotten at least one COVID shot, making white people 1.5 times as able to get access to locations under the state’s vaccine passport system, Excelsior. The alternative to vaccination under Excelsior is constant COVID testing, which again would be disproportionately applied to black citizens.

On just about every poll, African Americans and Latino Americans have registered higher levels both of COVID caution and vaccine hesitancy than white and Asian Americans over the entirety of the virus outbreak. COVID vaccines have been widely available for free in regularly accessed locations like grocery stores and pharmacy chains for at least a month nationwide, meaning that disparate levels of COVID vaccination at
