Coronavirus has disproportionately impacted minority ethnic communities, but these communities have also been subject to misleading information around the vaccine. 'Unfortunately we are now fighting another pandemic: misinformation,' Ray, who helped organise the video, explained. 'We all must do what we can and come together to fight this deadly virus. We hope this video can help dispel some of the myths and offer some encouragement for everyone to take the vaccine'
