Highlighting arguments that incarcerated persons should be high on the list for the COVID vaccines

I have been pleased to see recently more than a few commentaries making the case for making sure persons in prisons and jails have access to the coming COVID vaccines.  Here is a round up of some of these recent pieces:

From America: The Jesuit Review, "A Covid-19 vaccine has finally arrived. Prisoners must be prioritized."

From The Appeal, "People in Prisons and Jails Should get COVID-19 Vaccines as Early as Possible"

From the News-Gazette, "Vaccinating inmates — early — would be small step on long path toward justice reform"

From the Orange County Register, "An argument for the early immunization of prisoners"

From USA Today, "Here's why inmates should get vaccinated against COVID-19 before the rest of us"
