Tomorrow! Unmasking COVID-19: Virtual Panel Discussion and Q&A
Tuesday, February 23 at 5:30 PM
[Quoted from event's Facebook event] 

"Coronavirus is disproportionately affecting communities of color. Long-standing structural health and social inequities have increased the risks of sickness and death for people of color. These systemic issues coupled with the historic maltreatment of Black and Brown communities have created an environment of mistrust with the vaccine process. According to the latest report by Mass DPH, only 3.3% of Hispanic/Latinx, 2.8% of AAPI, and 2.6% of Black residents make up those who have been vaccinated across the Commonwealth.

To help build vaccine trust, which is critical to protecting lives and ending the pandemic, several organizations have joined together to provide a dedicated space for communities of color to learn, ask questions,and share concerns about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

Spanish and ASL interpretation will be available. Registration is required through http://bit.ly/2ZnfPWF. Join Governor Deval Patrick, Dr. Eden-Reneé Hayes, Dr. Adrian Elliot, and Rosa Tabango, LPN for an honest and authentic conversation about the vaccine. The event is co-sponsored by NAACP-Berkshire Chapter, Berkshire Health Systems, Berkshire Immigrant Center, Berkshire Pride and Community Health Programs."
