Summary

The relatively fast pace of the COVID-19 vaccine development may have created some mistrust, the study’s authors hypothesize.Black respondents also expressed additional worries about their lack of health insurance and ability to pay for the vaccine, despite the fact that U.S. officials have said that the COVID-19 vaccine will be free of charge and that any potential administration fees can be reimbursed to patients.“This points to the need for the medical community and policymakers to find ways to both build trust in the vaccine in the African American community and to ensure that it is delivered affordably.”– Timothy Callaghan, assistant professor at the Texas A&M; University School of Public Health and lead author of the studyThe study’s authors point out that respondents with conservative leanings were found to be less trusting of scientists and medical experts in an earlier study.The researchers also believe President Trump’s messaging implying that the pandemic does not present a serious health threat could have also played a role in the hesitancy of this group to get the vaccine.
