Addressing the misconceptions and equitable distribution issues related to the COVID-19 vaccine
Tuesday, March 23 from 7 to 8:30PM EST via Zoom
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken the lives of over 500,000 Americans, and the pandemic is not yet over. For some, the availability of a vaccine has decreased fears about the virus, but for others, the prospect of taking a vaccine elicits hesitation and caution. With our panel of experts, we hope to shed light about the spread of disinformation about the COVID-19 virus and vaccine. We also aim to discuss the differences between the most widely used vaccines and the distribution of these vaccines. Given the disparities related to COVID-19 infection in Black and Brown communities, we will be discussing the demographic implications of vaccine distribution.
This course will be formatted as a question and answer session with a panel of health experts (an epidemiologist, a physical therapist, and a health system manager).

-False information related to COVID-19 and the vaccines
