Civil Rights Complaint Filed Against New Hampshire For Refusing to Vaccinate Someone Based on Skin Color

A North Country New Hampshire man has filed a formal complaint against the state alleging discrimination in violation of “Section 1557 of the Patent Protection and Affordable Care Act (the ACA) and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.


New Hampshire established the use of racial and ethnic considerations in determining eligibility to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. During phases 1b and 2, it allocated 10% of available vaccine doses for “disproportionately impacted populations” as identified by the COVID-19 Community Vulnerability Index (CCVI). The state was to coordinate this set-aside distribution through the NH Regional Public Health Networks at sites “familiar and accessible to the target population.”

What is this target population? The state was to “[i]nitially provide vaccine to NH’s racial and/or ethnic minority community then include other vulnerable populations, such as those that are geographically isolated or those living in economic hardship.”

The state also was to hold a supply of vaccines in reserve for use in targeted response in racial minority census tract if needed. New Hampshire relied upon the CCVI, produced by a privately funded think tank, to determine which races, skin colors, and ethnicities would receive the vaccine ahead of others. The CCVI identified “minority status” as “all persons except white, non-Hispanic.”

New Hampshire relied upon the CCVI’s patently racist stereotype that non-whites are inherently “less resilient” than whites in order to justify deprioritizing whites, and only whites, for vaccines.


Long story short, a white man wanted a COVID Jab and got turned away because he was white. And as we’ve reported previously, the State’s own COVID data contradicts the notion that people of color are at higher risk in New Hampshire.

After 18 months the states’ data tells us that 90% of white people account for 93.4% of deaths. We noted similar numbers a year ago. Every other ethnic group’s fatality rate is lower than their share of the population in the State COVID Summary.

The reason for the disparity does have to do with “vulnerable populations,” but not in the context of #woke idiots beholden to broken narratives with no basis in science.

The people most at risk of dying from the flu in New Hampshire are old, and most of them are white. Period.

If you pretend to care about who is vulnerable to this flu, skin color is not the best metric in the Granite State.

But if New Hampshire really wanted to do something for people of color living in this part of the northern hemisphere, a coupon for some free vitamin D would have done them wonders. You too, pale face (and no, this is not medical advice, do your own research by which I mean “other than TV news and local or national politicians or bureaucrats”).

As for the Complaint, it is against the law to discriminate based on race, and that’s what happened.

Citations removed, reformatted.

[Redacted] is a 28-year-old white (non-Hispanic) male resident of New Hampshire who is diabetic and thus at elevated medical risk to COVID-19. On April 2, 2021, he called the Public Health Council of the Upper Valley to request a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. He was told through a recorded message that appointments were “fully subscribed for people of color.” [Redacted] was denied the ability to get a vaccine solely because of his race, color, and national origin. [Redacted]was eventually able to receive the COVID vaccine in New Hampshire on May 2, 2021.

The state of New Hampshire, NH-HHS, and the Public Health Council of the Upper Valley discriminated against [Redacted] on the basis of race, color, and national origin directly and indirectly in a HHS funded COVID-19 vaccination program. Although it is unclear if the state continued or continues to discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin, at least as late as June 27, 2021, the state’s main COVID vaccine website continued to state that “appointments are limited” and and “dependent on [vaccine] supply,” which left open the door to the state discriminating against whites.


I can’t see Biden’s Civil Rights Division doing much with this and not just because [Redacted] got a vaccine as desired a month later. Whites aren’t people in the context of #Wokeistan. They think that they deserve to be made to wait.

And we’ll have to wait to see what happens, but we’ll try to keep you updated.
