Much like with the virus itself, many people have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and its deployment. This goes beyond concerns about side effects and into the psychosocial aspects of a vaccination effort of this size. African Americans may have concerns about historical atrocities associated with the medical profession, so what makes the COVID-19 vaccination different? Those who are experiencing housing insecurity have similar apprehension, so how can they be included in these important deployment conversations? How do we ensure that no one who wants to be vaccinated is mistreated or overlooked?
This month’s Virtual Elk Place Health Spot from the Tulane University School of Social Work has assembled a group of esteemed panelists to talk about the COVID-19 vaccine and marginalized populations. Active in their communities and in research, each of these knowledgeable individuals will share reliable information about their areas of expertise and address questions related to infectious diseases, public health, social work, and social justice.
Join us via Zoom webinar on Thursday, January 28, 2021 from 12 to 1:30 pm CT. The event is free and open to the public, and advanced registration is required.
