Historic and ongoing healthcare disparities -- along with vaccine misinformation -- contribute to a higher rate of vaccine hesitancy in the Hispanic community. In this episode, special guest host and award-winning journalist María Elena Salinas explores some of the causes and solutions for vaccine hesitancy among Hispanic Americans. She sits down with Travis Escobar, a Hispanic millennial who had to use patience and compassion to convince his mother to get vaccinated. Then, she speaks with Dr. Eliseo Pérez-Stable, Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. Together, they discuss the barriers faced by the Hispanic community, and how listeners at home should approach their own friends and family for conversations about the COVID-19 vaccines.
