(CBN News) To better inform the African American community about the coronavirus vaccine, Bishop T.D. Jakes of Dallas’ Potters House, brought in big name experts for an online event Monday called “In Conversations with America: Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine.”
During the nearly hour-long discussion, Jakes asked the health experts if they had any angst about the vaccine over the long term.
Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, a viral immunologist and lead scientist on the coronavirus research team at the National Institute of Infectious and Allergic Disease’s Vaccine Research Center, did not hesitate to respond.
“Absolutely no angst at all,” said Dr. Corbett. “One of the things that is largely forgotten throughout this is that the first phase one clinical actually trial started on March the 16 which was almost ten months ago. And so, from those people, they’ve been followed since then. And there are no outcomes for long-term adverse outcomes. “Long-term side effects is not something to be worried about.”
