Non-Hispanic Black (hereafter, Black) and Hispanic patients have higher risk for COVID-19 infection and hospitalization,1,2 but have lower rates of COVID-19 vaccination3 because of factors such as limited access to care, lack of outreach, technology and language barriers, and mistrust of health systems.4 To address this, we conducted 2 concurrent interventions at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s vaccination site at the Armory, located in a racially and ethnically diverse neighborhood in Northern Manhattan: (1) a digital redesign to restrict online self-scheduling for vaccination to local zip codes with underserved racial and ethnic minority patient populations4 and (2) direct outreach to educate and schedule patients through community-based organizations (CBO).4,5 Here we describe changes in race and ethnicity makeup of COVID-19 vaccine recipients before and after these interventions.
