“Did I get vaccinated? Most definitely.

Communities of color are among the hardest hit by the pandemic. Vaccination plays a major part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and getting back to the lives we are accustomed to. The combination of vaccination, social distancing and masking will allow us to defeat this virus. Without these measures, we will continue to be crippled by this pandemic. It was important for me to get vaccinated to show that I have confidence in the science and that I believe the vaccine is safe and effective. So many have asked my opinion on taking the vaccine. Is it safe? Is it effective? There’s much hesitation in communities of color and rightfully so. This is the reason why I’m using my platform to share my thoughts and experience. I encourage all of us to do our part in stopping this pandemic.”
