The pandemic has hit communities of color harder than others, and vaccination rates among people of color are lagging behind those of other groups. To address these imbalances, and to urge EVERYONE to get vaccinated, the 100 Black Men of Greater South Bend produced this video in cooperation with Beacon Health System and the Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Sciences at Indiana University South Bend. We hope you will help us spread this message so as many people as possible get vaccinated when it is their turn. Thank you to LeAnne Young, RN, Memorial Hospital director of trauma services, and Dr. Freeman Farrow, Beacon Medical Group LaPorte, for using your voices in this important effort.
