New Rap Videos Aim to Help Increase COVID-19 Vaccination in Communities of Color


" “As the coronavirus continues to ravage communities of color, the long-standing distrust that many feel towards medical science has proven to be an even greater challenge,” says Williams, professor and chief of staff in the Department of Neurology at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons.

“Our goal with the Community Immunity anthology is therefore to increase vaccine literacy by demonstrating three critical points of fact: One, the vaccine is safe; two, no scientific shortcuts were taken in the development of the vaccine; and three, being vaccinated is an act of community service.”

The anthology, Community Immunity: A Rap Anthology about Vaccines, includes five animated videos featuring Grammy award-winning rapper Darryl DMC McDaniels of Run-DMC."
