Deaths among nursing homes residents accounted for more than a sixth of total COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.

But a ProPublica report published Friday found that more than 40% of workers at these facilities are not vaccinated, even though in June, 99% of the deaths from the more contagious Delta variant were in the unvaccinated population.

Host Celeste Headlee speaks with Jenny Deam, health care reporter at ProPublica and one of the co-authors of the report, about her findings.

This segment aired on July 26, 2021.
