They are recognizing the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected Black communities.

The Black Doctors Building Vaccine Confidence & Trust in Communities of Color

In an effort to help build a bridge from distrust to trust between the medical community and communities of color, this is a growing list of Black doctors who have agreed to be resources for your vaccine questions and are committed to combatting vaccine misinformation together with us.

I join with The Dr. Oz Show to commit to vaccine confidence and combat vaccine misinformation. We acknowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected Black communities and will work tirelessly to aid these communities in fighting the virus.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky gave the final sign-off allowing kids 5 to 11 to get the vaccine. What she has to say to parents who are hesitant or worried vaccinations may become a school mandate.
