Los Angeles/Canadian-Media: As part of a state of California's initiative to help vulnerable black and Latino communities hard-hit by the pandemic and pre-existing priority groups, healthcare workers, people over the age of 65 and those with underlying medical conditions, COVID-19 vaccine access codes meant for these groups have been circulating in Hollywood, media reports said.
The access codes are entered on California’s MyTurn website where people register for vaccination and authorities determine their eligibility.
People of color, particularly from black and Latino communities, have been hardest-hit by Covid-19 cases and deaths in the US.
To enable people of color who find it difficult to get an appointment, the California program sets aside a number of daily appointments by access code at two sites – California State Los Angeles. and Oakland Coliseum.
