Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) care for low-income, racially and ethnically diverse, medically underserved populations disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and its associated health inequities.1 As trusted, accessible entities, FQHCs may mitigate further inequities by providing access to COVID-19 vaccination in communities most affected by COVID-19 that have often been least likely to have access to vaccines.2 The objectives of this study were to examine (1) COVID-19 vaccination administration rates at US FQHCs by race and ethnicity and (2) the racial and ethnic equity in vaccine receipt at FQHCs.
