Ep 3: The COVID-19 Vaccine, Part II
The second part to the COVID-19 Vaccine series focuses on the vaccine's distribution. What goes into determining the distribution of the vaccine? What players are involved? Why is the vaccine's rollout so slow? Why are African Americans more hesitant to receive the vaccine than other demographic groups? Reverend Diann Holt, the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Durham's Maternal Stress Free Zone was personally appointed by New York Governor Cuomo as a member of the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Task Force and addresses all of these questions. She seeks to build trust in the vaccine within her community.
