BLACK HEALTH MATTERS
COVID-19 VACCINES & THE BLACK COMMUNITY
TAKE A LOOK INSIDE
Black Lives Matter, which means Black Health Matters too.
Open, transparent conversations in our communities and public information sharing with one another is key to understanding the vaccines — especially if you’re unsure whether or not getting one truly is the right choice for you.
To help you sort through the vast pool of vaccine information currently available, we’ve narrowed down some of the most significant topics regarding COVID-19 vaccine perception amongst Black communities and put them all in one easy to understand vaccine guide: Black Health Matters: COVID-19 Vaccines & the Black Community!
Already received your first dose?
Vaccine hesitancy does not equal refusal.
Our communities have been hit hard by COVID-19, and we deserve to experience life without this type of social and economic loss. The vaccine is our best shot to protect the health and safety of our communities. Just because someone is hesitant does not mean they will refuse the vaccine when it is available to them. It might mean they need more information to not only feel empowered and in control of their health, but also to make confident, informed decisions regarding their medical wellbeing.
