Publisher: Sacramento Bee

Black and Latino residents are receiving far fewer doses than white residents in Sacramento County, according to new data released by state officials Friday, reflecting a trend of racial disparity that has come to define the coronavirus pandemic. Though county officials have previously warned that the demographic data was incomplete, the new information from the California Department of Public Health reveals for the first time that white Sacramentans appear to be securing vaccines more quickly than residents of color.
