Gaming the Vaccine Distribution Rules

by Mike Critelli


I am a 72-year-old with residences in Florida and Connecticut. In Florida, vaccines are available to all permanent and seasonal residents over 65. Connecticut prioritized the 75+ population ahead of those younger.

Both states are utterly failing to achieve equitable access to vaccinations. And in both states people are gaming the systems in ways that increase the inequities.
