Science developed COVID vaccines in record time, but now that they’re ready, will people take them? Distrust among communities of color, especially historically disadvantaged African American communities, and a lack of data on the vaccine among people living with lung cancer are proving challenging to the vaccine rollout. In this episode, we talk to an African American pulmonary surgeon who volunteered for a phase 3 coronavirus clinical trial, and African American lung cancer patient advocates about their vaccine concerns and what questions they’ll be asking their own doctors about taking a vaccine.
