Saving Lives with the COVID-19 Vaccine in NJ Black & Caribbean Communities

Nearly a year into the pandemic, COVID-19 continues to circulate across our state and nation. Vaccination is a crucial component in battling the virus, especially in communities of color that have been disproportionately impacted. We recognize that there’s mistrust of and resistance to the COVID-19 vaccine across Black and Caribbean communities due to long-standing inequities in the healthcare system.

As part of a virtual Town Hall series on the COVID-19 vaccine, the New Jersey Department of Health is hosting a free public conversation led by medical professionals from NJ’s Black and Caribbean communities who will address facts, fears, and myths.
