The HANC-facilitated Youth Prevention Research Working Group invites you to a webinar on June 11 at 10am PT/1pm ET with Dr. Daniel Teixeira da Silva, MD discussing COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among sexual and gender minority men and transgender women. Sexual and gender minority populations are vulnerable to poor COVID-19 outcomes and more likely to experience stigma and medical mistrust that may affect vaccine acceptance.

Dr. Teixeira da Silva and the study team conducted an online cross-sectional study focused on HIV biomedical prevention technology willingness in the United States. The team included a series of COVID-19 vaccine and medical trust questions in the study screener. They collected the data from October – December 2020 prior to the FDA approval of the initial COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr. Teixeira da Silva will provide details about the study, the sample population demographics, highlight methods and measures that were used, and explain the results of the study.

If you’re unable to join us for the webinar, a recording will be placed on the HANC website for later viewing.
