The purpose of this presentation is to align with communities who might be hesitant to receive the vaccine. In Black and Brown communities, there is hesitation and fear around getting the COVID vaccine due to systemic and structural racism. This presentation is intended to be interactive as a way to engage the audience about their thoughts and feelings and offer strategies for coping with how to make a decision about getting the vaccine.
