An Ounce of Prevention
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on our nation for almost a year. The advent of a vaccine presents the promise of a way out of this pandemic. However, concerns over the safety of the vaccine in conjunction with the historical reservations of People of Color regarding medical research and treatment have made for a tepid response to the availability of the vaccine. What are the best options to move forward? How do we address the concerns of those reluctant to take the vaccine? Join us for a Town Hall Meeting as we discuss the concerns and offer solutions.
