JAMA Network

What The Study Did: This study found that the rate of COVID-19 vaccination among 31,000 California state prison staff for the first half of 2021 lagged behind incarcerated people and plateaued at levels that posed ongoing risks of further outbreaks in the prisons and continuing transmission from prisons to surrounding communities.

Authors: Lea Prince, Ph.D., of Stanford University in Stanford, California, is the corresponding author.
