BlackHistory Covid Vaccine Webinar

CHI partnered with our pastoral, organizational, educational, and business networks to hold a Zoom Conference about the history of vaccine hesitancy and the current challenges of convincing vulnerable populations to get the COVID-19 vaccine.


According to a 2020 study by the Pew Research Center, only 54% of Black adults said they would get a coronavirus vaccine, as opposed to 74% of Hispanic and white adults. This response stems from a deep distrust after years of medical mistreatment and racial disparities in health care.


This webinar aims to ease doubts within the community so that everyone can take advantage of the vaccine. Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Saint Anthony Amofah, moderated the session, and our physicians served as presenters.


Topics included:

  • The important contributions of Blacks in the development of vaccines
  • The unjust and cruel history of experimentation on Blacks
  • The CDC’s vaccine recommendations and ethical principles for distribution
  • Information about local accessibility of the COVID vaccine
