Making It Plain: A Town Hall on Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine
Time & Location
About the Event
The Black Coalition Against COVID and the leading black health professional organizations invite you to join us for Making It Plain – A Town Hall on Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine. Almost a year into the pandemic, the virus is raging across our nation. A quarter-million Americans – and COUNTING - have died and more than 10 million have been infected. This town hall is designed to inform our community about the threat this pandemic poses for our survival in addition to sharing the Who, What, Why, When, and Where of COVID vaccines.
We are here to help you understand the answers to the critical questions that affect your life. How sound is the science? Has the vaccine's safety and effectiveness been measured against underlying health conditions that disproportionately impact African Americans? How will the vaccine be distributed and to whom? Who gets priority? Are black professionals involved in the approval process, and if so how? And most pressing of all… will our community accept a proven and safe vaccine? And, what are the consequences if we don’t?
COVID is real. It is devastating. This much-needed discussion offers hope, clarity, and some practical steps forward.
