Virtual Public Forum: (Mis)trust in the COVID-19 vaccine in the African American Community
People of color are at greater risk of becoming infected with, and dying from, COVID-19. To reduce this community's risk, an upcoming virtual town hall will be held to discuss mistrust of COVID-19 vaccines, details about the delta variant, and myths and facts about COVID-19. Participants will hear from health experts who have been on the frontlines, working to share health information and save lives.
The event is open to the public.
