Both non-white residents of Vermont can now get a COVID vaccine

From the Vermont Department of Public Health:

If you or anyone in your household identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC), including anyone with Abenaki or other First Nations heritage, all household members who are 16 years or older can sign up to get a vaccine.

A little more detail on this government program …

    • That’s a great question! If we believe that vaccines can save lives, this program is an explicit government declaration that a BIPOC life is worth more than a white life, which wouldn’t seem to fit with “nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

      But on the other hand, judges have already ruled that it is okay for the government to allocate contracts by race and gender ID. And judges have ruled that it is okay for government-run or government-funded universities to organize admissions by skin color and/or victimhood category. If a government-run school can reject an applicant for being white, why can’t a government-run vaccine clinic reject a patient for being white?

  1. Makes sense, as those communities have been found to suffer more COVID. Of course, any racists lens doesn’t want to acknowledge this reality.

    • @John, such community sufferers from many other “ailments” too, such as poorly maintained homes, dirty streets with trash and graffiti, homes and shops requiring metal bars for security, run down schools with poor graduation records, gangs ruling the neighborhood, and so on and so fort — and yet, such cities and neighborhood are lead and managed by the same people of color and get get the same if not more funding compared to other safer neighborhood.

      Do you still consider this racists? Do you care to explain why such neighborhood, decades after decades never improve? And I’m not talking about neighborhood with poor black families only, I’m talking about ANY run down neighborhood.

      And yes, I get it, many of those neighborhood were oppresses many years ago, even as little as, let’s say 50 years ago, but wouldn’t you say that we would expect to see improvements over the years?

      Btw, neighborhood in and around DC is a fine example to start with, or we can start with towns and cities right here in my home state of Masksachusetts.

    • The reality is, for all the professed love to BIPOC the left is intent on using them as uninformed (and thus unable to consent) test subjects for medications which did not pass normal long-term safety clinical trials.

      This is Nazi-level racist.

  2. Segregation cures all ills, as rediscovered by all the thousands of past governments. Our vaccine sites are all physically located in black neighborhoods 30 miles from the professional blog commenter neighborhoods. One does not undertake driving 30 miles in Calif* lightly. On the other paw, those more black neighborhoods have the highest infection rate.

  3. So you don’t actually have to be Black, Indigenous, or a person of color; you just have to identify as such.

    Just the same, I’ll pass.
