Ask A Black Doctor: Vaccines

January 21, 2021  |  Panel Discussion

On January 21, 2021, Bethany Community Ministries's own Elaine Jenkins, RN, was a featured panelist on "Ask A Black Doctor," a discussion series produced locally by 1Hood Media and Gateway Medical Society. The conversation, moderated by Jasiri X, highlighted experiences around deciding whether to get vaccinated, the science behind the shots, and side effects. The panel also included Rachel Toney, MD, and Stephanie Miller, MD.

Is it too late to get a Flu shot?

I can't go without saying: one of the lead investigators and developers of the Moderna vaccines is a Black woman.
