Much of the public has gotten a lesson in vaccine clinical trials research, and now is learning more about the Emergency Use Authorization mechanism as it is used to approve the first vaccines.  This session will include African American and Latino community members, public health professionals, and local leaders to talk about what we know about these topics and prepare our communities to make informed decisions about the vaccine.
