Dr. Fauci noted that his goal is to get more Black and Brown folks to get vaccinated and pointed out that he’s aware there’s been reluctance to move. Lynch saw through all of it and simply asked, “Can I be myself??” This led Lynch to ask if the vaccine would leave him more “f**ked up” as opposed to not taking it at all. Along with that, Lynch asked, “Will the vaccine shorten my life expectancy?”
Fauci responded by saying that the Black community faces a higher rate of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity more than whites, which means COVID-19 could be more deadly for the group. Lynch responded by saying, “So, what it sounds like to me, [is that] we have a bigger problem than coronavirus.” Watch above.
