    President Joe Biden said Friay the. U.S. is on track to have enough vaccines for the public by the end of July during remarks at Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine manufacturing factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

    States are leaving behind some of the people most vulnerable to contracting or dying from Covid-19 in a quest to quickly administer shots.

    The U.S. vaccination campaign that started off slowly has accelerated in recent weeks with online systems to book appointments and mass clinics that immunize thousands of people a day. Yet the pressure to ramp up vaccinations is promoting tactics that favor people with access to technology, transportation and spare time. Others who may be at greater risk of death from Covid are less equipped to navigate systems built for efficiency.

    “I don’t think the solution is to move slower so we bring everyone along,” said Shivani Patel, a social epidemiologist at Emory University. “I think the solution is figuring out ways of bringing everyone along.”

    Two months into the campaign, the focus on speed highlights the inequities it can create. White and Asian people are generally receiving shots at a higher rate than Blacks and Hispanics in states that collect information on the race and ethnicity of vaccine recipients, according to Bloomberg’s vaccine demographics tracker.
