The COVID-19 pandemic has had disproportionate adverse effects on the Black, Indigenous, and people of color community, with significantly higher numbers of cases, deaths and hospitalizations compared to those not in the BIPOC community. Similarly, members of the BIPOC community are among those most affected by the pandemic’s economic disruptions. As COVID-19 vaccines become available to the public, it is imperative that they be distributed equitably.
The Vaccine Education Roundtable Series will focus on addressing key questions and concerns that this population has regarding COVID vaccines and how to optimally communicate with them.
In the second part of this interview featuring panelists Christopher da Costa, MD, PhD, FACP, FIDSA, Virginia D. Banks, MD, MBA, FIDSA, and Uzma Syed, DO, FIDSA, they discuss policies and strategies to address the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 has had on minoritized communities and share what health care providers can do to drive health equity in these communities.
