05:10

Dr. Shereef Elnahal, the CEO of University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, and the former state health commissioner, joins Andrea Mitchell to talk about racial disparities in the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine distribution. "Everything from testing access to the ability to receive care in a timely way to now vaccination access is worse for people of color throughout this country," Elnahal says. He adds, "it's not enough to put a vaccination center in a minority community, you have to make sure it's actually accessible."
