Georgetown Law School professor Lawrence Gostin said people should not be surprised the default method for distributing vaccines — online signups for centralized locations with fixed hours — gives an unequal result.

“We have done little to actually go into communities and talk with community members and talk with influencers there to get people on board. We should be chasing this population, not having them chase this vaccine.”
