As Vaccinations Begin, Mistrust Is A Major Hurdle In Some Communities | Stephanie Ruhle | MSNBC


  1. The government has shown thelat they can’t be trusted. So bringing out every black doctor to say it’s “okay” won’t change that. Everyone has a price to talk. It’s like they are trying too hard to get black people to take it first. It’s a gut feeling red flag

    1. Native Americans ask that people don’t get the vaccine, we want out land back including your people too.

    2. Emsley Wyatt Where do you get that idea? It started in China and they’re not black. It appears to have been brought into the country by jews visiting Europe and Israel. Again, not black.

  2. I thought the doctors and the nurses all the healthcare people would be getting it first and then the seniors would be getting it next I didn’t know it was state by state b*******

    1. It’s state by state because the Trump administration refused to administer a national response. No leadership. CDC guidelines are frontline workrs and residents of long care facilities in Group 1A should receive the first vaccinations. It’s up to state officials whether they will follow those guidelines.

  3. FOR NOW! Forget anti covid vaccination American people and FOCUS on getting as many people who want to take the covid vaccine vaccines We do not have time for to argue with anti vaccination people .

  4. This is a none issue. Those who want to survive this virus will take it. Those who want to take their chances might not.

    1. @Martyn Peel that’s not what I meant when I said that I just have other meds that probably isn’t ok for me to get a vaccine now or several months from now that all.

  5. Stop trying to convince people to get vaccinated. The more you push, the harder suspicious people resist. Let the people who want to be vaccinated have a chance to get the vaccine, and issue immunity passports. The vaccine hesitant will see how much they’ll have to miss out on, and get vaccinated. There is so much bogus “information” out there, you cannot fight it. Vaccinate the healthcare workers, and those in nursing homes, then make it available to all who want it. Just put the vaccine in Walgreens and other drug stores, and let it be first come, first served. Then advertise that there is not more vaccine for two weeks, more to come. Give those who get the first dose a card guaranteeing the next dose in three weeks. Issue an immunity card to those who get the second dose. FOMO will do your job for you.

    1. It cost a lot of money and resources to treat ignorant idiots who’ll get the virus after refusing the vaccine.

  6. This vaccine may not stop the pandemic, but it should stop most of the hospitalizations and most of the dying. It might also reduce or eliminate most of the long term side effects of nearly every COVID positive person.

  7. Hydroxychloroquine was rushed with an Emergency Approval and was stopped because it had negative effects on the heart, this vaccine was rushed with Emergency Approval …. to be continued.

    1. @David Hale, it was approved for Covid, at that point COVID was only around for months.
      If you knew COVID was around for 40 yrs, why didn’t you tell someone?

  8. Anyone with a brain should be distrustful of this vaccine. Not enough testing and we are being used as guinea pigs. Good luck to the sheeple. Do your own research and only then make a decision.


  10. Well if Democrats didn’t keep saying that I say we’re not taking this because it’s under the Trump Administration then maybe we wouldn’t have an issue

  11. China is distributing it’s vaccines to itself and many other countries.
    US promotes warp speed while it buys vaccines created in Germany, Belgium and other countries…
    US Military distributes vaccines with a focus on saving lives. Will they now stop bombing other countries?
    NZ movie Soldiers Without Guns? How peace in Bougainville was helped by waiata (song) and haka (dance).

  12. Trump HERD IMMUNITY is a Covid death EVERY 30 SECONDS!
    Trump WARP SPEED is 66% of the US population waiting until June 2021 or later.
    US has 66 times more Covid deaths than China = US 307,514 China 4,634 (x66).
    NO VACCINE & NO COVID = Taiwan 7 and New Zealand 25.

  13. Putin’s trolls will be working overtime posing as anti-vaxxers in order to undermine the effort to end this virus.
