Should famous people get the COVID-19 vaccine first? The idea behind 'vaccine influencers'

Once the Food and Drug Administration approves the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which is expected on Thursday, the first doses will be rolling out for emergency use here in the U.S.

A Centers for Disease Control panel said those initial shots should go to people living in nursing homes and health care workers, but what if prominent people, including star athletes, were next up?

There's definitely some hesitancy by Americans to get, and trust, the COVID-19 vaccine, especially among the African-American community.

The Associated Press did a recent poll and less than half of Americans say they're willing to get it. That gets even slimmer when you look at demographics, with only 24 percent of Black people polled saying they're planning to get the shot.
