Innovation Health: Ep 12 - Black American Hesitancy toward the COVID-19 Vaccine

February 19, 2021

According to the Pew Research Center, only 42% of the Black population in the United States say they are willing to get the current COVID-19 vaccine. In this episode, we try to learn more about  the hesitancy among the Black community to take the vaccine, and then take a deeper dive into understanding the vaccine itself. Is it safe? Why should people consider getting it? Alex Gaudin, host of Innovation Health, talks with one of Ochsner Health’s senior Black physicians, Dr. Obinna Nnedu, who specializes in infectious Disease, in order to gain a better understanding of this issue.
