Dr. Anthony Fauci Makes The Case For The Vaccine To Roxbury

Download Audio

As the promise of a coronavirus vaccine becomes more of a reality, not everyone is ready or willing to take a vaccine. Recent studies find that people of color are the most hesitant right now to take the vaccine.

Those statistics worry Rev. Liz Walker, the pastor of Roxbury Presbyterian Church.

So, last night, she tapped the nation's leading expert on the COVID pandemic to make the case to her congregation: Dr. Anthony Fauci. Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

We speak with Rev. Walker about the event, and how public health officials should work to build trust in communities of color.
