Former NFL running back, Marshawn Lynch sat down with chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci to discuss vaccine hesitancy, education and science behind the COVID-19 vaccine and more.

In a 30 minute interview, Lynch aka Beastmode and Dr. Fauci talked about the safety of the vaccine which Lynch began by talking about why some African Americans are so reluctant to get the vaccine.

Fauci stressed how safe it is due to research and that it’s been tested by thousands of people.

“It is safe because we tested it in tens of thousands of people, including African Americans and Hispanics,” Fauci explained.

Lynch also brought up concerns about if the vaccine will become mandatory in order to rejoin the normal world. Fauci said while the United States hasn’t gotten to that point, other countries have made it mandatory.

Although Lynch hasn’t received the vaccine yet, he mentioned, he wants to make sure he’s educated and others in the African American community are informed about the vaccine.

“I’m not saying I’m opposed or I’m telling my people not to get,” Lynch told Fauci. “I do want to know, I want to get educated more about the fact that this is something (some African Americans) do not feel like they want to do.
