Despite being hit hardest by COVID-19, a substantial number of Black Americans continue to express skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine. The “Better For It” tool kit is a joint collaboration by ALA and The Center for Black Health & Equity to provide African Americans with information on the benefits and importance of vaccinations. Black Americans will also learn about the significant contributions made by Black scientists and public health advocates who are working to end the COVID-19 pandemic. “Too many Black people are suffering during the pandemic,” said Delmonte Jefferson, executive director for The Center for Black Health & Equity.
