Guardian News published this video item, entitled “BAME celebrities call out vaccine misinformation” – below is their description.
A group of celebrities have released a video addressing vaccine misinformation in BAME communities.
The group, including actors Adil Ray and Meera Syal, as well as cricketeer Moeen Ali and presenter Konnie Huq, appealed to black, Asian and ethnic minority communities to help address hesitancy around the Covid-19 vaccine.
Coronavirus has disproportionately impacted ethnic minority communities, but these communities have also been subject to misleading information around the vaccine.
‘Unfortunately we are now fighting another pandemic – misinformation,’ Adil Ray, who helped organise the video, explained. ‘We all must do what we can and come together to fight this deadly virus. We hope this video can help dispel some of the myths and offer some encouragement for everyone to take the vaccine.’Guardian News YouTube Channel
