The elderly vs. essential workers: Who should get the coronavirus vaccine first?

Harald Schmidt of the Perelman School of Medicine said it is reasonable to prioritize essential workers over older adults for the COVID-19 vaccine. “Older populations are whiter,” he said. “Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already had more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”
