Federally funded community health centers have now administered more than 10 million COVID-19 vaccines, the Biden administration is set to announce on Wednesday.

  • More than 60% of them went to racial and ethnic minorities.

Why it matters: Vaccine equity has been an ongoing concern since the shots first received emergency approval. This is one sign that efforts to reach racial and ethnic minorities are working.

Details: HHS pointed to the Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program, a collaboration between the Health Resources and Services Administration and the CDC, with accelerating the distribution of shots.

  • Starting Feb. 9, the collaboration began providing a direct allocation of COVID vaccines to a cohort of 25 health centers in addition to vaccines the centers received through their states.
  • The program later expanded to include 1,470 centers including all HRSA Health Center Program-funded health centers and Health Center Program look-alikes.

What they're saying: "We made it very clear the implementation of the rollout of the vaccinations had to have equity as a primary consideration. And that’s actually what’s happening," Anthony Fauci said at an Axios event.

Pfizer and BioNTech announced on Thursday a deal with Brazilian pharmaceutical company Eurofarma to manufacture its COVID-19 vaccine for distribution in Latin America.

Why it matters: Latin American countries have struggled to vaccinate their populations due to a low supply of doses of the COVID-19 vaccines. The new deal would boost local manufacturing and distribution of doses.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Thursday announced a statewide indoor mask mandate and vaccine requirements for state workers, including teachers and school staff.

Why it matters: The Democratic governor's latest restrictions come as COVID-19 cases across the state are on the upswing, largely driven by the Delta variant. "Unfortunately, we are running out of time as our hospitals run out of beds," Pritzker said at a news conference Thursday.
