Lesson Plan: Race and vaccine hesitancy in the U.S.

As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available to more Americans, there has been widespread media attention given to the reluctance of some Black Americans to take the vaccine. This lesson seeks to examine the reasons for that distrust and reluctance, but also to examine whether or not Black residents are opposed to taking the vaccine when compared to other groups in the country. 

Essential question: How has the U.S. health care system’s treatment of Black citizens led to distrust and a lack of confidence? 

Estimated time: One or two 50-minute class periods

For grades 9-12
