Vaccination Nation


In this episode, we dive into all things vaccines and welcome multiple special guests! Fellow AmeriCorps Member Grace Kneebone joins us for our School Spotlight to share how COVID has impacted her school and her students. As a fellow podcast extraordinaire, she also serves as the producer for her school's series entitled The Principal's Podcast. You can check it out here! Family Dr.Marie Ramas also joins us to answer our questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, discuss the racial disparities associated with infection rates and vaccine rollouts, and provide us with some medical advice as we continue to traverse these unprecedented times. To learn more about her COVID-19 media project, The Lighthouse NH, click here. This episode was recorded in April of 2021. As the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic is constantly changing, we are also continuing to learn more about this virus on a daily basis. With recent case numbers on the rise and variants continuing to surface, we encourage all eligible populations to get the vaccine and continue to adhere to CDC guidelines by wearing a mask in areas of substantial or high transmission. 
Over the past year, there has been an increase in racially motivated attacks on individuals within the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. These abhorrent acts continue to exemplify ongoing racism and white supremacy in our country, with the most recent incident taking the lives of eight Georgia residents this past week, including six women of Asian descent. When recording this episode in mid-February, we did not expect the relevance of the topics we discussed in this episode to rise to this level in the societal consciousness through the shootings that occurred earlier this week. We understand this conversation may be difficult to have, but it is integral to the ongoing work of dismantling racism and AAPI stigma throughout the United States. We stand in solidarity with the Asian American Pacific Islander community and against racism and prejudice of all kinds.  Episode 2 has arrived! Four “C” Able Future Podcast Update: How do we sound?
