Experts: Race Must Determine Vaccine Priority – Reclaiming America

Experts: Race Must Determine Vaccine Priority

The COVID-19 vaccine rolled out this week, and now there is a debate about which groups should be a priority on the coronavirus vaccine waiting list. The New York Times attempted to answer the question about the COVID-19 priority list in an article titled “The Elderly vs. Essential Workers: Who Should Get the Coronavirus Vaccine First?“, according to Blaze Media.

The article featured health experts, economists, and epidemiologists to give their insight into who should move to the front of the line for the COVID-19 vaccine. Much to the shock of many readers, the experts considered race when deciding who received priority in receiving the potentially life-saving vaccine. [emphasis added]

Dr. Peter Szilagyi, a committee member and a pediatrics professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, declared, ‘The issue of ethics is very significant, very important for this country, and clearly favors the essential worker group because of the high proportion of minority, low-income and low-education workers among essential workers.’ [emphasis added]

Harald Schmidt, an expert in ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, told the New York Times, ‘It is reasonable to put essential workers ahead of older adults, given their risks, and that they are disproportionately minorities.’… [emphasis added]

Marc Lipsitch, an infectious disease epidemiologist at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, also hinted that the race of a person should determine who should or should not get priority on the coronavirus waiting list. Lipsitch said that teachers shouldn’t be considered essential workers, ‘if a central goal of the committee is to reduce health inequities.’ [emphasis added]

“‘Teachers have middle-class salaries, are very often white, and they have college degrees,’ Lipsitch told the Times.” [emphasis added]

  1. This vaccine should be given to everybody that wants it starting with the elderly people everybody deserves to keep safe no matter what color they are they’re all the same

    These so-called recommendations for dispensing the vaccine along racial, financial, and educational lines are just plain absurd! They are based on emotion, not reason. The rational protocol in this situation is to vaccinate the most vulnerable first, regardless of race or other such issues. This means the elderly, the disabled, doctors, nurses, and other hospital/clinic workers; first responders such as police, paramedics, firefighters, rescue workers; and public workers eg, waiters, cashiers, salesmen, security, receptionists, and, YES, teachers–the remark that teachers are NON-essential workers is OUTRAGEOUS! And absolutely NO putting ILLEGAL aliens AHEAD of American citizens!

  5. Robert Ivey says:

    This is a load of B.S. Race, a person’s education, or income has absolutely nothing to do with saving lives with this vaccine. You so-called experts are just a bunch of fools and idiots! It is without any doubt in my mind that you all are a bunch of Biden supporters!

  6. Why make a race of color go first to get a vaccine or age , the vaccine is to protect the people from dying and any one should get get it ,regardless, who made this stupid idea.was an idiot, remark and the medical clinics or hospitals should ounce they get the vaccines should give out the shots ,the sooner the what about if a mix marriage one is white and the other is of color , how is it going to be distributed ,the idea now that the vaccine is ready every one should get it.and what about the military.and the civilian personal that work for as a civilian contractor ,why wait, before more people die.

    Why are most people here responding as if they are god and know more than the scientists about how to control this invisible viral enemy of the human race? Someday you most likely will be extremely thankful for these scientists. Will you refuse their help and expertise when you are in the ER with a broken limb or dying of cancer and begging for the drug that will save your limb or your life? Will you refuse to take cold medication or the antibiotic your doctor prescribes when you have to show up to work the next day or be fired? Think please, before you damn those who are attempting to save your lives.

    Y’ALL ARE CRAZY IF YOU GET THIS “DEPOPULATION” VACCINE! The ONLY TIME an injected material must be kept at minus 70 degrees is if it’s a modeled AIDS-like virus used to transport RNA to other cells! This “vaccine” is a biological engine used to splice DNA and ALTER THE GENETIC MATERICAL OF THE TARGET CELLS! This information was posted by NON BIG PHARMA OWNED American and Allied doctors on free platform channels! This is Gates’ depopulation vaccine…the first of many! WAKE UP AND STOP WATCHING THAT BOOB TUBE! It’s a lying propaganda machine! Don’t take this death stick! #THISISTREASON

    Any society that considers their elderly non-essential is a society in deep decline. SAD.

  10. gregg says:

    the medical then the people infected then the elderly then ??????/ no ILLEGALS should come before a USA citizen

    • Debbie Ewart says:

      I so agree with u Kathleen! The government should of been the last to get this vaccine! NO Illegals’ are untitled to any thing the American people worked so hard for! I am over this bs about our Country becoming Socialist or giving up our rights, which so many have died for! 95% of the government should pack their bags and go live in these countries, not as a millionaire but as a poor person does

  11. Danny says:

    Racism against white and prejudice against the educated has exploded. Racism of any kind is not ok.

    The US was not a racist country until the politicians stirred the pot to gain power and control causing racism against white people to be considered ok.

  12. 9MM says:

    Sure give it to them as that way if they go under it won’t bother the majority. Illegals and others mostly Donny pay the taxes or do the work. It’s stupid to kick the majority of American tax payers for the one who live off of our work and taxes to get the gold while all we get is the shaft.

  13. Kathleen Marie Cleary says:

    Why did you post “race” is a factor? Never said that but only stood up for American Citizens.

  14. Kathleen Marie Cleary says:

    My feeling is – if you are a US citizen, you get the shot first. No illegals should ever be put ahead of American Citizens. We’ve all been paying into our system for many, many years and we need to supported first. NO ILLEGALS BEFORE AMERICANS

    • Frances Brandenburg says:

      I’m 81, have heart and lung
      issues so contracting the covid is probably a death sentence for me
      I can’t understand why a younger person who would get sick and recover no matter what race should get a vaccine before the elderly, of course I grew up in an age where the elderly were respected and loved. Maybe not being in this different world would be better
