Changes in COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy Among Black and White Individuals in the US

Question -- How has COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy changed among Black and White individuals in the US since vaccines became publicly available?

Findings -- This survey study of 1200 US adults found that COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy decreased more rapidly among Black individuals than among White individuals since December 2020. A key factor associated with this pattern seems to be the fact that Black individuals more rapidly came to believe that vaccines were necessary to protect themselves and their communities.

Importance -- COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Black individuals in the US; however, vaccination rates among Black individuals trail those among other racial groups. This disparity is often attributed to a high level of vaccine hesitancy among Black individuals, but few studies have examined changes in vaccine hesitancy over time.

Conclusions and Relevance -- This survey study suggests that the intention of Black individuals to be vaccinated was initially comparable to that of White individuals but increased more rapidly. There is some evidence that this increase is associated with changes in beliefs about the vaccine. Vaccination rates continue to be lower among Black individuals than White individuals, but these results suggest that this might be less likely the result of vaccine hesitancy than other factors.

Below is a complete explanation of details concerning how this collection of data was implemented to fully understand the details its important to full read the medical journal in the link below:

The UK government are increasingly looking likely they will not insist on people working in the NHS needing to be jabbed.

Is that because of the sale of tea?

? Eh? 

They've realised that there's more deaths brewing from routine required health care than covid. 

Plus in UK, the covid figures 'with' and 'of' have been manipulated so badly that the cabinet have realised they've been duped.

I guess its saying hesitancy is decreasing faster amongst black people than white people but that black people still have the lowest rate of vaccination.

That makes sense. Just took me a second

It's definitely not due to availability.   I don't recall anything being as easily accessible as the vaccines have been.

I think a big part of it is because black people are seeing friends and family members die.   Obesity rates are higher with black people than any other race.  Obesity causes allot of strain on the body and leads to many other complications leaving people susceptible to complications from covid.
