COVID. KNOW MORE.

Health disparities left Black Americans vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and dying from it at higher rates, nearly two times greater than their share of the population. In the last two months, there has been a sharp increase in the number of African Americans who are concerned the worst of the pandemic is yet to come.

Students, businesses, employees, and homeowners have all been hit hard by the pandemic, with 61% of African Americans concerned about the loss of income related to the current pandemic. As the dangerous Delta and Lambda variants wreak havoc around the world, it is important now, more than ever, to take all precautions to protect yourself and your community.

Use this up-to-date research, resources, and stories to help ease the uncertainties and safeguard your community. With the facts, we can all make the best decisions for ourselves and our families.

88% of African Americans believe new variants and strains could potentially be more contagious or deadly.

A BOOST OF PROTECTION

The CDC has just announced today's vaccines are only about 66% effective against the Delta variant. In some cases, booster shots may be necessary.

Now isn't the time to give up. As of August 2021, 62% of African-Americans are either fully vaccinated or have had their first dose with plans to receive the second. This helps protect our families against hospitalization and death. We're going to continue to fight against Delta - together.
