Pamela Simms-Mackey, MD explains why people who are young and healthy still need to get the COVID vaccine to prevent illness.
Black doctors, nurses and researchers dispel misinformation and provide accessible facts about the #COVID #vaccines in this new living library of FAQ videos to help Black people with this important decision. More videos and voices will be added as new questions arise and information becomes available.
