In this episode Carrie and Gloria explore how historical medical injustices have created a racial divide in whether or not to trust the COVID-19 vaccines. They talk with Dr. Rich Joseph of Brigham and Women's Hospital about the vaccines and delve into the reality that some people are ready to get vaccinated while others are scared as hell!
