Using data from several states that have published their own maps and lists of where vaccination sites are located, NPR identified disparities in the locations of COVID-19 vaccination sites in major cities across the Southern U.S. — with most sites placed in whiter neighborhoods.

KUT’s Ashley Lopez, Shalina Chatlani of NPR’s Gulf States Newsroom, and NPR’s Sean McMinn explain their findings. Read more here.
