The mission of the NAACP is to ensure equal political, educational, social, and economic rights for all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
This mission includes a focus on the right of African Americans and other people of color to have optimal health outcomes and access to timely, quality, affordable health care. African Americans continue to have the highest incidence, prevalence and mortality rates from chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, and issues like HIV/AIDS continue to overwhelm the Black community more so than any other racial or ethnic group.

The history of medicine and the African American people evokes mistrust, pain, and weariness. From prescribed medication to the COVID vaccine, African Americans hold one question in their hearts, “Can I trust it?” The experts will tell you, “Yes! You can trust us and what we give you.” However, that’s easier said than done. NAACP Santa Monica Venice went to the people in the neighborhood to hear real-life experiences of those who are vaccinated and why they chose to get vaccinated.These are a handful of people sharing stories of vulnerability and trust with you. Be open to hearing them, but it will be up to you to research credible sources, talk to more vaccinated people, and trust that the vaccine will save your life and protect the most critical people surrounding you – the black community.
Credible Sources About COVID-19 and the COVID-19 Vaccines:Is coronavirus real?How Is COVID-19 Spread?What are coronaviruses? Why do I need the COVID-19 vaccine?A black person helped make a COVID-19 vaccine?
