“One of Vice President Kamala Harris’ first tasks in office could very well be her most important: getting skeptical communities — mainly people of color — to put the Covid-19 vaccine in their arms,” Politico reports.
“The task falls on her for an obvious reason. She’s the highest ranking and most visible person of color in the federal government, and the African American community has been among the most skeptical of any about getting the Covid vaccine.”
“The administration has a plan to deploy Harris to spread awareness and boost confidence among a group of people who are also some of the most at risk of infection. It’s a lofty but uncertain goal, complicated by Harris’ difficulty earning support within the Black community during her primary run.”
