COVID-19's Disproportionate Effect on the African American and Latino-Hispanic Communities

In some cities in America, Latinos and Black Americans are dying of COVID-19 at higher rates than other Americans. Data analyzed by many researchers have confirmed that the African American and Latino-Hispanic populations have disproportionately higher rates of hospitalizations and deaths due to the disease.

As of June 2021, the CDC’s latest report states that 23% of recent vaccines were administered to Hispanics, 10% to Blacks, and 8% to Asians. We at LHC are pleased about this fact to see that our efforts are making a difference in these communities.

 

Community Driven

We care for all communities. Unfortunately, the Black and Brown populations have the lowest rate of being immunized against COVID. LHC focuses on educating this population about the disease and effective preventative measures to stay healthy.

Our Surveillance and Mobile Teams strive to reach beyond the barriers in targeting populations within area codes 19801, 19802, 19805, 19720.
