VIDEO #1: WHAT ARE VACCINES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

I got the vaccine, You got the vaccine

It’s about Community Immunity

I’m the king of rock, There is none higher 

DMC –  I will inspire 

Time for us to trust and not debate, 

The vaccine, believe it’s safe to take 

Nine out of ten people won’t get sick, That’s 90% effective, and legit

This COVID thing is real, And it will find you 

It’s killing our people, Let me remind you 

Back in the days, Back in the days

There was polio, smallpox back in the days 

Measles and mumps, man back in the days 

But because of the vaccines none of those stayed 

Vaccines they work to trigger immunity,   

Two shots we got antibody security 

We gotta act now no need to wait 

Get your vaccine before it’s too late, For real…

Hey yo Doc, what’s going, on I got a question 

About the vaccine lies and misperception?

Now if it’s true or if it’s false 

I mean a lot of people lost 

They wanna know, do you got any suggestions?

I got a few. Now, I’m a do my part to help

The vaccine is safe I got the shot myself

The misinformation a lot of people facing, the hip-hop doc came to erase it 

They say the shot will give you COVID 

No, it won’t give you COVID

Now wait a sec, you saying it protects you from COVID? 

Not only will the vaccine protect, but those with underlying conditions need it more than the rest

Will it affect our DNA? 

That’s false don’t believe it

The vaccine will help us we need it

It’s not just a moment of truth but the moment for truth

Got the shot from the doc, she hit the spot

Then I felt a little tired and maybe a little hot

Arm was sore, my body and my head did ache

Woke up the next day and I was straight

Yeah, it mighta felt a little rough but one shot ain’t enough

Gotta get the repeat in 3 to 4 weeks

For the peace, it’s nothing but the truth I speak

We in a peak, vaccines can prevent a defeat

Immunity instead of eulogy, duty for the community

Getting it expeditiously, ignoring conspiracy theories

Gotta get the blood ready to fight

With some antibodies set to kill the virus on sight

It don’t matter which type, the M or the P

Cuz they both are set to protect us equally

Roll up ya sleeve cuz the vaccine is key

Cuz it ain’t about me, it’s bout we, uh

The Hip Hop Doc!

What it do Docta Mo?

It’s a SOS – we gotta let the folks know

They believe that the vaccine is bad for you

But we looked at the data and it just ain’t true

When I got the shot it kinda felt like the flu

Shooot, that’s much better than the ICU

The shot’s pretty safe but the Rona is cruel

It could make you sick, could be the end of you

It’s vaccine or bust but there’s a lot a mistrust

Cuz the system is racist that’s the main basis

But face it, the numbers don’t lie

We gotta survive and save Black and Brown lives

We need community immunity to fight from within

We need 8 out of 10 to get it in for the win

To protect and defend, and hug your mom again

Cover your grin, let the healing begin, uh
