AG James Issues Statement on New York Vaccine Equity Task Force Appointment

NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement on her appointment to the newly-launched New York Vaccine Equity Task Force:

“It is vital that New York does everything in its power to eliminate barriers between the vaccine and marginalized communities, which are also the communities most devastated by the pandemic. Without equitable vaccine distribution, COVID-19 will remain a plight throughout our state, and will cost us more lives. It is my honor to serve as a co-chair on this task force and help ensure our most vulnerable communities get access to vaccines as quickly and as efficiently as possible.”
