Black Americans Cite Low Vaccine Confidence, Mistrust, and Limited Access as Barriers to COVID-19 Vaccination
Aug 6, 2021
The RAND Corporation, in collaboration with CHIPTS, the Harvard University CFAR, and representatives from APLA Health, Invisible Men, and the Primary Care Development Corporation, hosted a community town hall entitled, "Vaccine Confidence and Black Communities: Where do we go from here?" This event aimed to share lessons learned about COVID-19 vaccine messaging and access, in order to reduce inequities.
The town hall was attended by 78 individuals who listened to a presentation of research findings and community considerations for vaccine access, equity and messaging for Black communities. Participants then participated in breakout rooms to discuss solutions to addressing inequity.
