While developing the Covid-19 vaccine, Dr. Tyson Bell spoke to KHN about why black Americans are being vaccinated at a lower rate than white Americans. More than a year later, we checked in with Bell, an assistant professor of medicine and a doctor in the intensive care unit at the University of Virginia, about the status of the epidemic and the changes that have taken place in the health equity conversation since then.
The video is part of KHN’s new “Spotlight” interview series, which aims to broaden the voices of health professionals, patients and anyone who interacts with the U.S. healthcare system.
