If the coronavirus pandemic wasn’t enough, the city of Flint, Michigan is fighting the consequences of a second public health crisis. Residents are still reeling after local officials chose to switch the city’s water source to the Flint River back in 2014. They also failed to treat the water, leading to corrosion and, eventually, contamination. City and state leaders insisted it was safe to drink, even as dozens got sick and at least a dozen others died. As Correspondent Jessica Gomez reports, the mistrust from that deadly experience is now seeping into the city’s efforts to vaccinate their most vulnerable communities.
