This report has been produced following CAHN’s special Health Hour information session on 16th January 2020 that focused on the COVID-19 vaccines with a panel of Black GPs and senior consultants who shared their experiences, and personal reasons for taking the COVID-19 vaccines and why would encourage Caribbean & African people to take the vaccine when offered.
The event was attended by CAHN’s Patron, the Very Reverend Rogers Govender, Dean of Manchester and Nadhim Zahawi MP, Minisyer for Vaccines Deployment.
The report highlights the disparities faced and the basis upon which many Black people will engage and make decisions about which path they choose for their own health. 40% of the 220 respondents to the post-event evaluation (within a week) said they would receive the COVID-19 vaccines based on the information they have received during the Health Hour session.
