An interview with Dr. Fitzhugh, a Black doctor who took part in Covid-19 vaccine trial.

Hello, this is George Cook and I am a councilman in Hillside NJ. I know that many, especially those in the African American Community have questions about the safety of Covid-19 vaccines and have many doubts about taking it. To be honest, so do I.

I reached out to Dr. Valerie Fitzhugh of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School after reading an article in which she volunteered for a covid-19 trial study in an effort to show others that a vaccine would be safe. Dr. Fitzhugh, who has also appeared on MSNBC graciously accepted my offer to do a Zoom Meeting and to answer resident’s questions about Covid-19 vaccinations.Many of the questions Dr. Fitzhugh answered may be questions you have, so check out the interview.

Valerie A. Fitzhugh is an American clinical pathologist and Associate Professor of Pathology, Immunology, and Laboratory Medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School as well as an Associate Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Medical School. She is the Interim Chair of the Department of Pathology, Immunology, and Laboratory Medicine at Rutgers and the Interim Chair at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School as well. Fitzhugh is also the Chair and Medical Director of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Clara Maass Medical Center.
