To help better understand the impact of COVID-19 on the health of LGBTQ+ people, the HRC Foundation released new data, conducted by Community Marketing & Insights and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. The data relays findings from surveying over 1,500 LGBTQ+ adults, exploring the health impact of the pandemic on LGBTQ+ people, experiences with getting vaccinated and concerns with the Delta variant.
The data suggest that LGBTQ+ adults are much more likely to have been vaccinated. However, LGBTQ+ adults may have been more likely to get COVID-19 compared to all adults in the United States. This lends support to previous research by HRC Foundation which detailed the health risk of the LGBTQ+ community as the pandemic began to unfold.
For the first time, our research presents data on concerns with the vaccines among people who undergo hormone replacement therapy or take medication for the treatment or prevention of HIV. Most notably, Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ adults have expressed some of the highest rates of concern with how the vaccines may interact with their medication for treating or preventing HIV.
