Coronavirus: The Whole Story
Why are some black people hesitant about the vaccine?
With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in the UK well underway, in this episode we explore some of the differences in uptake in communities across the UK, with around 70% of Black people reporting that they're unlikely to have the jab.
Host Vivienne Parry is joined by a UCL team of researchers and clinicians from the Royal Free Hosptial in London - Mr Leye Ajayi, Dr Lola Emanuel-Kole, Dr Taj Fregene and Chris Brew-Graves to discuss some of the issues surrounding vaccine hesitancy, and exploring how to overcome some of the barriers to Black people being vaccinated.
