From the New York Times news section:

Black and Latino New Yorkers Trail White Residents in Vaccine Rollout

Data showed that while 24% of city residents are Black, only 11% of vaccine recipients were. White New Yorkers received a disproportionate share of the shots.

By Emma G. Fitzsimmons
Jan. 31, 2021

The rollout of vaccines in New York City — once the epicenter of the pandemic — has been plagued by stark racial disparities, with Black and Latino residents receiving far fewer doses than white residents, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Sunday.

The city’s demographic data was incomplete, but the information available revealed for the first time that white New Yorkers are navigating the city’s complicated vaccination system more easily.

The more than one million Asians who live in New York City are, as usual, of negligible interest to the New York Times. Including in racial comparisons another more competent group besides whites would shed useful perspective, but of course that’s the last thing the NYT wants to do because it would undermine it’s Whites Bad narrative.

Of nearly 300,000 city residents who received one dose and whose race was recorded, about 48 percent were white, 15 percent were Latino, 15 percent were Asian and 11 percent were Black. Latino and Black residents were underrepresented: The city’s population is roughly 29 percent Latino and 24 percent Black.

One reason presumably is because more blacks and Latinos came down with Covid during New York City’s turn in the barrel last spring and thus already have the defensive antibodies. It’s perfectly sensible for the already recovered to forego a new vaccine in short supply in favor of those who need it far more than they do.

The disparities were even more striking among city residents aged 65 and up: Only 9 percent of the roughly 125,000 older New Yorkers vaccinated were Black.

Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat in his second term, said he was frustrated that New Yorkers in communities of color that were hardest-hit by the pandemic were not getting vaccinated.

From the New York Times in late September:

New York City on Tuesday released more than 1.46 million coronavirus antibody test results, the largest number to date, providing more evidence of how the virus penetrated deeply into some lower-income communities while passing more lightly across affluent parts of the city.

In one ZIP code in Queens

That zip code was the ironically named Latino neighborhood of Corona near La Guardia Airport. (My guess is that airport workers were big conduits early last year connecting wealthy world travelers who came down with the disease apres ski in the Dolomites and the like in February 2020 with crowded working class neighborhoods.)

, more than 50 percent of people who had gotten tested were found to have antibodies, a strikingly high rate. But no ZIP code south of 96th Street in Manhattan had a positive rate of more than 20 percent. …

But the neighborhoods with more residents who were infected at the height of New York’s outbreak in March and April may be less likely to be among the hardest hit during a second wave.

On the other hand, neighborhoods in which few residents have been infected may find themselves more vulnerable in the event of a resurgence.

So it makes epidemiological sense for more Upper East Siders to rush to get vaccinated than for many residents of Corona.

But who can remember all the way back to 2020 when alerted to the existence of racial disparities?

Back to the new NYT article:

Other cities and states across the country have seen similar racial disparities in the vaccine rollout. In New Jersey, about 48 percent of vaccine recipients were white, and only 3 percent were Black, even though about 15 percent of the state’s population is Black, according to state data. In Chicago, about 15 percent of vaccine recipients were Black and 53 percent were white.

It’s almost as if there’s a correlation between intelligence and attitudes toward the vaccine.

Also, maybe the enormous amount of emphasis by the news media in recent decades, accelerating since 2013, and reaching a crescendo in 2020-21, about how whites are out to kill black baby bodies like Emmett Till, covid victims, George Floyd, and the Tuskegee syphilis patients may have made blacks suspicious of white people declaring that blacks should go first with this new type of vaccine. “No, no,” scream the whites telling blacks to get to the front of the line for this emergency-authorized biotechnological breakthrough, “We are the Good Whites who love black bodies, not those Bad Whites we hate. Can’t you tell????”

    "To get a solid model, you need to normalize for political affiliation."

    I suspect it's a moving correlation. As of 6 years ago (i.e. before Trump and COVID) anti-vaxxers tended to lean liberal according to a Pew Research Center poll. Those who earn less than $25K, those who live in rural areas, and those without a college degree were all more likely to be anti-vaxxers.

    Put all that together, and the claim that "...there’s a correlation between intelligence and attitudes toward the vaccine…” seems plausible.

    Had they broken the poll responders out by race, we'd see how much of that is skewed by African American attitudes towards vaccines (given that they're more likely than whites to be Democratic, salaried at < $25K, and without college degrees) but I'm not surprised the poll takers decided to step around that land mine.

I will reinstall the Mask Of Shame when I am at the very door of Store B, and part of the reason I do it like this, to be frank, is not to be thought such a retard that I unthinkingly wear a mask driving alone in a car with the windows rolled up.

    I will bend on masking up when entering some place where it is expected, but not on this. I, too, suit myself, but with a different outcome. Diversity! is our strength, after all. Carry on...

    There should be a headline to that effect. Whites are picking up the slack for blacks who are uninterested in vaccinating.

    Incidentally, I learned recently that this study was perfectly legitimate and had been completely misrepresented in the official History to portray blacks as victims and white scientists as villains. I shouldn’t have been surprised. Misrepresentation or outright fabrication is the norm.

    It happened at black run, black staffed, all black , HBU Tuskegee Institute because Tuskegee , negro lover Eleanor Roosevelt and idiot liberals vigorously lobbied the federal health service to include Tuskegee in the study after Tuskegee’s first application to join the study was turned down.

    Tuskegee lobbied to be included and get the money. Tuskegee’s rational was blacks should be included because blacks had a gazillion times higher than White rate of sphillis and other STDs than Whites due to promiscuity.

    The study went on all over the country. There were far, far more White trial subjects than blacks involved.

  15. I doubt that world travelers spreading the virus to airport workers was a significant factor in the Corona neighborhood’s high infection rate. Except for a few Canadian flights LaGuardia Airport is limited to relatively short-distance domestic traffic. Kennedy and Newark airports serve the international market.
    In any event, to the best of my knowledge airport workers don’t seem to cluster in particular adjacent neighborhoods, at least in New York. Airport jobs pay well enough that people are willing to commute fairly long distances, and because work hours are often nonstandard there’s not a big concern with living as close as possible to avoid rush hour traffic.
    Corona and other central Queens neighborhoods got hit hard last spring for the same reason that some parts of Los Angeles had so many cases a month or two ago: overcrowded housing, often multigenerational.

    Blacks, sensibly, don’t give two shits about the vaccine. Hispanics are too busy working. And white Kens and Karens are trampling people to get vaccinated while they drag their double-masked four year old along for the ride.

    The person making that Tweet is confusing how long a FDA strength Phase III vaccine trial lasts, which is indeed two years of following up the people who got the vaccine, with FDA licensure. Normally we might assume the two would have a correlation, but thanks to the millions, soon to be tens of millions of human guinea pigs due to this being an emergency and all, the FDA will have an unusual massive source of data from this early Phase IV of "post-marketing." So I don't think any of us can predict when or if the FDA will go all the way to licensure of these vaccines, if they'll black box any of them, etc.

    I am surprised that the article doesn’t mention the Tuskegee syphilis study to justify the reticence to vaccination by blacks.
    Incidentally, I learned recently that this study was perfectly legitimate and had been completely misrepresented in the official History to portray blacks as victims and white scientists as villains. I shouldn’t have been surprised. Misrepresentation or outright fabrication is the norm.

    Me, even if the scenario you posit were true for me when I am out and about engaging with the world, I still rip the fucking thing off of my face almost immediately when leaving Store A, because I can't stand it. I will reinstall the Mask Of Shame when I am at the very door of Store B, and part of the reason I do it like this, to be frank, is not to be thought such a retard that I unthinkingly wear a mask driving alone in a car with the windows rolled up.

    I will bend on masking up when entering some place where it is expected, but not on this. I, too, suit myself, but with a different outcome. Diversity! is our strength, after all. Carry on...

    Those of us old enough to remember it also might just be old and wise enough to recognize the state of the art has improved a bit since then. Plus that the only real thing that made it a fiasco was the expected epidemic/pandemic didn't materialize, so the benefit side of the risk/reward tradeoff skewed towards not taking it.

But to get an appointment, you have to log on at just the right day and minute, and then be very fast with the mouse and keyboard to whip through the application form before all appointments are taken (about 15 minutes.) I imagine there is a strong correlation between office-worker, constant PC-user and success at getting an appointment.

    I doubt that world travelers spreading the virus to airport workers was a significant factor in the Corona neighborhood's high infection rate. Except for a few Canadian flights LaGuardia Airport is limited to relatively short-distance domestic traffic. Kennedy and Newark airports serve the international market.
    In any event, to the best of my knowledge airport workers don't seem to cluster in particular adjacent neighborhoods, at least in New York. Airport jobs pay well enough that people are willing to commute fairly long distances, and because work hours are often nonstandard there's not a big concern with living as close as possible to avoid rush hour traffic.
    Corona and other central Queens neighborhoods got hit hard last spring for the same reason that some parts of Los Angeles had so many cases a month or two ago: overcrowded housing, often multigenerational.

    Replies: @Forbes

    Point of reference: Corona’s population density is 125 per acre. Another Queens neighborhood, closer to Manhattan, Sunnyside, has a population density of 27 per acre. (Wiki)
