Please ignore conspiracy theories — take the vaccine and protect yourself and loved ones

BISHOP KAROWEI

MY wife and I are both qualified medical doctors and we have had a lot of people ask us if they should take the Covid-19 vaccine.

The Royal Society for Public Health found that only 57 per cent of black, Asian and minority ethnic people said they would take these new vaccines.

By comparison, the acceptance of the immunisation programme among white people is 79 per cent.

The hesitancy among the African and Caribbean diaspora is due to a historical lack of trust.

If people ask me about the vaccine I tell them that when I am offered my vaccination I will have it, and because my wife is a front line NHS worker she has already had hers.

I tell them they trust medical professionals when they go to their surgery or to hospital and they should trust them now.

Please ignore the conspiracy theories.

By taking the vaccine you are protecting yourself, your loved ones and the wider community.
