Why Vaccines Matter in the African American Community

Health disparities left Black Americans vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and dying from it at higher rates, nearly two times greater than their share of the population. In the last two months, there has been a sharp increase in the number of African Americans who are concerned the worst of the pandemic is yet to come.
 

Students, businesses, employees, and homeowners have all been hit hard by the pandemic, with 61% of African Americans concerned about the loss of income related to the current pandemic. As the dangerous Delta and Lambda variants wreak havoc around the world, it is important now, more than ever, to take all precautions to protect yourself and your community.
