San Diego County not vaccinating enough Latinos, Chicano Federation’s ‘promotoras’ reach out to the community
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The County is not vaccinating enough Latinos despite them making up 32.6% of the population.
The vaccination rate among Latinos in the County remains at only 15.9%, according to County documents.
Take the largely Latino neighborhood of Logan Heights, which has one of the country’s highest COVID-19 rates and one of the lowest vaccination rates.
The San Diego Latino Health Coalition is reaching out to people in-person and educating them through the Chicano Federation’s Promotora program.
