Prisons, like nursing homes, have been hot spots during this pandemic. People who are incarcerated are more likely to be Black and other people of color and have higher rates of underlying medical problems. It makes little sense to only vaccinate correction officers.
It's *very* disappointing that the CDC's Advisory Committee has not directly addressed the vaccine prioritization of people who are incarcerated. Correction officers and people who are incarcerated should receive the vaccine at the same time.
