Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, a black woman, was a key scientist behind the Moderna vaccine. Dolly Parton helped fund that same vaccine. My gay black ass was part of the clinical trial. This is the new circle of life. Any questions?
I don’t think any black or brown people should be shamed for having any doubt in the vaccine. The information about the vaccine is provided in a way to cast doubt. I had to do my own research and personally ask a scientist friend to help clear up my own concerns.
Educating people is so simple and I think every news outlet should take the time to do it without sensationalizing the vaccine as a miracle. There was decades of research and ample testing that doesn’t get acknowledged.
A lot arduous work was done to make sure the vaccine is safe. I’ve been smoking for 20 years and as healthy as a dead cat, and my side effects were mild.
