With all Oregon adults eligible for COVID vaccines, who's actually getting them?

All Oregonians 16 and older are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, but the virus continues to spread, and the state so far hasn’t lived up to its promises to ensure people of color and those most at risk of the virus get their shots first. In the second half of the show, we’ll hear from The Oregonian and OregonLive’s Rob Davis about how a public records request filed by our newspaper laid bare the full scale of the inequities and why where you live may be the best indicator of whether you’ve been vaccinated yet. But first, The Oregonian and OregonLive’s Aimee Green, who talked about the worrisome public health models that indicate the pandemic is not yet over, what it all means and whether the state is ready to vaccinate millions more Oregonians.
