Black people in the United States are less likely to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and are more likely to experience hospitalization and even death from COVID-19 than other racial groups in the U.S.

What are the barriers – economic, social and cultural – that are contributing to this disparity? How can we create solutions to improve people’s knowledge and counter misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccination, with the goal to get more people in the Black community vaccinated?

Join MoAD for a panel of experts and community advocates as they grapple with these issues.

PANEL:

--Dr. Sheryl Davis, Executive Director of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission - moderator of discussion

--Dr. Malcolm John, Infectious Diseases UCSF

--Shakirah Simley, Executive Director at the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center

--Rivka Louissant, Artist and Community Organizer
