Liz attends African Heritage Alliance discussion

In January I joined the Director of Public Health, Ivan Browne and others at a meeting of the African Heritage Alliance to discuss the vaccine roll out in Leicester.

When taking age into account analysis shows that, Black people are more than 4 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than white people. However, 72% of black people in the UK are hesitant about having the jab.

It is vitally important to dispel myths and misinformation about the vaccine and I encourage everyone to get their vaccine when they are offered.
