Role of Faculty in Addressing COVID Vaccination Hesitancy among HBCU Students

Speakers: Seronda Robinson, PhD and Reginald Fennell, RN, MSN, PhD, MCHES, CEN, FNP-BC

Youth 18-26 years of age have been identified as a priority group to get the COVID vaccination (Fauci, 2021). Thus, this webinar will provide an overview of the impact of COVID-19 on African American college students, aged 18-26. Epidemiological data and risk factors for COVID-19 among HBCU students will be provided. Emphasis will be placed upon reducing COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy among this age group. Finally, public health education strategies will be provided to faculty on encouraging HBCU students to take the COVID vaccine.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the session, the participants will be able to:
1) Discuss the factors that put African American college students at risk for COVID-19.

2) Discuss the hesitancy factors associate with the COVID-19 vaccine among African American college students.

3) Describe at least communication strategies for African American college students about the importance COVID vaccine in reducing the COVID infection.
