Dr. Fauci says black scientist Kizzmekia Corbett is among the builders of COVID-19 vaccines
TSR Health: Roommate, Dr. Anthony Fauci, conveyed a message to his “African American Brothers and Sisters” regarding the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines that are currently being developed. Polls have shown blacks are very skeptical about taking the vaccine, but Fauci says we shouldn’t worry because a black scientist is contributing to this whole thing.
In an interview with the National Urban League for CBSN, Dr. Fauci points to racism and suspicion in medical research regarding blacks, and is sure to include that the safety of the COVID vaccine is also in the hands of black scientist Kizzmekia Corbett.
“Kizzy is an African-American scientist who is at the forefront of developing the vaccine,” he says. “The first thing you would like to say to my African American brothers and sisters is that the vaccine you will be taking was developed by an African American woman.”
According to TMZ, Kizzy Corbett is the lead scientist on coronavirus research at the National Health Institute of Dr. Fauci and was part of the team that worked with Moderna to develop its emergency vaccine.
Studies show that only 14% of blacks trust the vaccine to be safe and only 18% trust the vaccine to be effective. It seems like Dr. Fauci are trying to build trust in the community but do you think it worked, Roomies? Let us know in the comments!
