BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Vermont Health Department says a technical error Wednesday of the vaccine registration system prevented parents from adding a new dependent for those who identify as BIPOC.

The error prevented some people from registering their children. The state apologized and say those impacted will be prioritized by pushing them to an earlier date and setting up school-based clinics in higher populations of color.

The error has been fixed.
