New York United for Justice calls on officials to release vaccine data on inmates in New York

While inmates in prison in New York State are able to get the vaccine, the data has not been made public.

A coalition of criminal justice organizations are urging officials to make the data available to the public.

New York United for Justice is a coalition of 14 organizations focused on criminal justice reform and penned a letter demanding transparency. They want information on how the virus was handled medically as well as updates on vaccination of inmates.

The coalition is also asking for current and future vaccine plans with tracking information.

Advocates are still calling for the release of vulnerable inmates to help stop the spread.
