Black Nurses of Sacramento are trying to recruit. We have to do more coming together and assess our strengths, weakness and advocates. @RSidqe

Anything that can reinforce, solidify access is importance. Uplift anything that pushes our community to become more culturally intelligent. We take care of our own better. @StacieWaltonMD

Question: Expand on work with incarcerated populations as relates to Covid. @RSidqe

A problem as no one was advocating for those incarcerated. Lock downs still happening today due to Covid. COs are brining it in from the outside. COs are not getting vaccinated. @RSidqe
Record number of deaths as pertains to the prison industry. Visitations cut-off. No instructions on what to do. Some exposed were sent to different prisons which caused a larger outbreak. @RSidqe

Percent of partially vaccinated in Sacramento: - Black: 54.4% - White: 58.5% - Asian: 94.2% - Hispanic: 56.4% - AI/AN: 50.5% - NHPI: 83.8%
Myth about a different Covid vaccine for black people. This is misinformation. Myth about vaccine being injected with nanochips. Reminder, our cell phones are the chip! #DispellingTheMyths @StacieWaltonMD @RSidqe
This pandemic was unprecedented. That is why the vaccine was able to be made as quickly as it was. #DispellingTheMyths @StacieWaltonMD
Attendee question: Is it ok to get the vaccine while pregnant?

We have as a people experienced historical medical racism. The "father" of OBGYN based his career on brutalizing enslaved black women. Tuskegee. Henrietta Lacks. Historical traumas that make us fearful. Which is understandable. @StacieWaltonMD
Absolutely and highly recommended @RSidqe

Our black community - black churches and organizations, all hands on deck - all came together during the #pandemic. We galvanized as a black community in #Sacramento. @RSidqe

We can't allow the powers that be to divide us in our focus. It is something when black folks get together that is not embraced the same as in other groups. @RSidqe

We must find a way to support each other. Include men - we need to talk about this in a joint effort, men and women together. @RSidqe

There is a relaxation in the concern. Covid arrived and the world moved into its reptilian brain - decisions made from a state of fear. @StacieWaltonMD

Something happens will you have cultural congruence for health outcomes. It creates a loving relationship - better outcomes. @StacieWaltonMD
