San Diego County not vaccinating enough Latinos, Chicano Federation’s ‘promotoras’ reach out to the community

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.
