"To me, it’s unconscionable. We know this is a vulnerable health population. We can show they’re not doing well. I just cannot fathom why states are being allowed to not report," says Scott Landes, associate professor of sociology. If states had a greater focus on the pandemic’s impact on the disabled, he says, "vaccination prioritization would be much clearer. You would have the evidence to tell you what needs to be done." Landes was quoted in the Washington Post article, "People with disabilities desperately need the vaccine. But states disagree on when they’ll get it."
