Building Vaccine Trust
ABC 7 Chicago News interviewed SPH's Karriem Watson, PhD, MPH in Community Health Sciences '10 and a research assistant professor of community health sciences, on the upcoming roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines. Watson stressed that outreach is needed to communities of color to overcome past abuses and health disparities.
The conversation we want to have is addressing a lot of the medical mistrust, and addressing a lot of the myths and misperceptions about vaccine. Research has often been done to us and not done for us, and that sometimes is embedded in our memory.Research Assistant Professor of Community Health Sciences|
