Vaccine access codes for Black, Latino communities improperly used in affluent L.A. areas


The program to address inequities in vaccine distribution relies on special access codes that enable people to make appointments on the My Turn vaccine scheduling website. The state canceled appointments made with at least one of the access codes after The Times inquired about it last week. In all cases, the origin of the access codes remained unclear. A doctor friend sent the link for COVID-19 vaccine appointments, the original sender wrote. Even with an access code, actual appointment slots still remain limited and are not always available on the site.
