Black Americans Hesitant on Vaccine #infographic

According to a joint Kaiser Family Foundation and The Undefeated poll, 49 percent of Black respondents said they either definitely won't get a COVID-19 vaccine or certainly won't, even though it was considered safe by scientists and given free of charge. Compared to Hispanic and white respondents, that's a large discrepancy, with 37 percent and 33 percent , respectively, saying they probably or definitely won't take the vaccine.

The Undefeated survey and writers focus on the distrust of Black Americans with the current health care system, as well as with politicians responsible for informing people about vaccine plans. The study goes on to demonstrate how 46% of Black parents say the pandemic has had a big effect on the ability to afford basic needs, with a third of Black parents stating that the pandemic has had a substantial negative impact on their children's ability to care for them.

Many researchers and experts across the globe believe that a safe, reliable and affordable vaccine against COVID-19 is still months away. Even, that doesn't stop politicians from bullying vaccine producers and spreading disinformation across social media and the digital domain. New research reveals how the public is becoming more wary of a proposed vaccine and how this skepticism is being intensified in the country's black communities.
