As part of Vaccine Education Week on NY1, Errol discussed the glaring racial gap in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in New York and across the country, with Dr. Uché Blackstock, who is an emergency medicine physician based in Brooklyn and a Yahoo News medical contributor. Dr. Blackstock explained what the Biden administration should be doing to address the racial disparities and discussed the need to improve overall access to the vaccines.
She also shared what she tells patients who are hesitant about taking the shot and explained the differences between all the vaccines and their effectiveness against the new strains of coronavirus. And as New York City prepares to resume indoor dining, she talked about whether or not people should be eating at restaurants indoors.
Escucha aquí un podcast especial en español en el que la presentadora de Spectrum News, Ybeth Bruzual conversa con el Dr. Faisal Fakih, un neumólogo con décadas de experiencia. El doctor Fakih habla sobre los mitos de la vacuna COVID y sobre lo que los inmigrantes indocumentados deben saber sobre el proceso de vacunación.
