Black Churches Play an Important Role in Vaccination Efforts

Black churches across the country are playing an essential role in the nation’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts. These “faith-based vaccination partners” are helping to address the distrust in Black communities and encouraging skeptical congregants to get vaccinated. They are also helping Black seniors who struggle with online registration systems and sitting on hold. With COVID-19 disproportionately impacting Blacks, addressing fears through trusted partners is essential.
