Watch Dr. Watkins, the Senior Clinical Advisor to the Deputy Incident Commander of the COVID-19 emergency response at NYCDOHMH, lead an informative presentation on the science behind vaccines and health equity. Hear from our panel Jessica, Brayan, and Jessenia from CUFFH Youth, on the importance of the vaccine for young people, how we can have an equitable vaccine distribution, and how youth, youth who are undocumented, and our communities can heal and be empowered to move forward from the trauma of the pandemic.
