A Message From Black Physicians & Community Leaders
The Cincinnati Black medical community, in partnership with the Health Gap and Cincinnati Medical Association, has united to dispel vaccination myths and educate us about vaccine safety. The 3 available COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, including and especially for all Black people over age 16!
More than 50 Black physicians signed a letter to help all of us better understand the vaccines and why we need it to save ourselves.
The following is an excerpt from the letter. Click here to read it in full.
The goal is for all of us to stay alive. As of today, we have lost over 550,000 people in the United States due to COVID-19. Millions more COVID-19 survivors are battling the long-term effects of this illness, including chronic lung disease, heart disease, kidney disease, and neurological disease. As we remain focused on preventing more devastation caused by the COVID-19 virus, we desire to help you make an educated decision.
