“I am getting vaccinated today. Members of my family have been vaccinated. Individuals must decide for themselves but I encourage eligible adults, except those who have prohibitive medical conditions, to get vaccinated.” Hamm said.
Hamm, who is African-American, also expressed concerned about the low vaccination rate among African-Americans and other people of color.
“We are dying from the coronavirus at a rate two to three times higher than whites but we are being vaccinated at a rate less than half that of whites,” he said. “I urge Black people and other people of color to get vaccinated,” he said.
