Any " Sex and the City " content wouldn' t be complete without Stanford, so fingers crossed Garson makes an appearance in the revival. Those seven words led Jack Berger to go down in history as the guy who used a Post-it note to break up with Carrie. He also delivered the line that might be the most lasting contribution to pop culture in all six seasons of " Sex and the City :" "He's just not that into you." After writing the Post-it and disappearing into the night, Livingston, 53, has had continued success in Hollywood.

But Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha, won ’ t be joining in on the fun. That ’s not exactly surprising—she’s made her feelings about reprising her iconic role perfectly clear—but she’s remained mum on the reboot since its reveal. It's official: Sex and the City is coming back! As announced just the other day, a revival of the series, to be called And Just Like That , has gotten the green light from HBO Max — with one big (but, er, not that Big) difference: Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones won ' t be back.

Amid heightened vaccine hesitancy in Britain’s minority communities, comedians, singers and TV personalities there collaborated on a new video to encourage all ethnic groups to take the coronavirus vaccine.

Given the show's New York setting, it was perhaps inevitable that this would be the case after the city became the epicenter of the U.S. coronavirus outbreak in the spring of 2020.

Did you know that Sex and the City was Moynahan’s first TV role?

London Member of Parliament David Lammy, who took part in the politicians’ video, said he’s not surprised by the survey findings because he’s seen this hesitancy in his own family.

“I had been in touch with relatives who are in their 80s and 70s to ask them if they had taken the vaccine and many of them were coming back and saying, no, they weren't sure they wanted it," Lammy said.

Lammy’s uncle died in New York last year after contracting the coronavirus. The lawmaker watched the funeral over Zoom, which he said was deeply depressing. And his uncle is just one of many people he knows who has died from the disease.

“I've lost an old school friend, a classmate and many people in the local mosques have lost their lives. You know, there's a lot of grief in Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities here in the UK, where it's now become virtually impossible not to know someone who has lost their life."

Sex and the City is typically remembered for its racy content and fashion significance. But the show was never really about those things. No, SATC was about what was on Carrie’s mind — specifically, what she was “wondering.” The woman spent a tremendous amount of time in a state of wonder.

Of course, the rumors, speculation and mythos that surrounds certain filmed sex scenes would not be possible were

Minorities in Britain have been hit hard by the pandemic. The death toll is higher among these communities partly due to the fact that many are working frontl-ine jobs. But health inequalities, housing conditions and structural racism are all key factors.

Now, anxiety about the vaccine is adding to the concern. New research shows that vaccine uptake is so far lower among Britain’s Black and Asian communities than the rest of the population —  71% versus 86%.

The reasons behind the slow uptake are not yet clear. Dr. Winston Morgan, a professor in toxicology and clinical biochemistry at the University of East London, said vaccine hesitancy is a real problem and the causes are complex.

Mistrust in the medical profession is a definite factor. There are plenty of historical examples of abuse of Black people in scientific trials, Morgan said. But there are enough present-day examples, too, of poor health care provision within the community, Morgan said.

“Most people will have a story of someone in their family or themselves engaging with the medical profession in some way and not having a nice experience or having a bad experience based on discrimination or bias.”

He suited up just three times during the playoffs and ended up traded along with Cedric Paquette and a draft pick as part of Tampa’s attempt to get cap-compliant.

“Most people will have a story of someone in their family or themselves engaging with the medical profession in some way and not having a nice experience or having a bad experience based on discrimination or bias.”

Black women in Britain are four times likelier than white women to die in pregnancy or childbirth, a report in January revealed. Poverty, racism and domestic abuse all play a part, the report found. Morgan said findings like this are familiar within the Black community and add to people’s fears. He believes part of the reluctance is also “a demonstration of agency.”

“They're saying, 'Give me all the information you have and then I'll take it,' rather than you saying I have to take it.”

Morgan said for a long time, Black people “trusted the system and relied on the system to protect them and it didn't do that, it didn’t protect them,” he said. “They want to take their time to make a decision on whether they can now trust the health care providers.”

Lack of representation among health care leaders, scientists and government figures is also an issue, he said.

“Fundamentally, people need to be part of the system as professionals, not just as customers or users, so they need to be part of the hierarchy. People need to see people who look like them in serious positions.”

Birmingham general practitioner Dr. Anita Raja is acutely aware of this problem. Born to an Afghan mother and Pakistani father, Raja speaks multiple languages including Urdu, Punjabi and Persian.

Raja notices her surgery attracts many Urdu- and Punjabi-speaking patients and believes they come to her because she can speak to them in their native language. She said it’s crucial that  information about the vaccine is available in different languages. Some patients won’t speak to doctors about their concerns because they are afraid they won’t be understood, Raja said.

“We've got a huge Bangladeshi, Pakistani community here. And yes, I must say they are reluctant to take the vaccine. They do not want to speak to their doctor because they feel that they might not be heard and might not be understood.”

“We've got a huge Bangladeshi, Pakistani community here. And yes, I must say they are reluctant to take the vaccine. They do not want to speak to their doctor because they feel that they might not be heard and might not be understood.”

Raja released a video in Urdu on social media to explain the vaccine and Britain’s rollout program. She has heard all the conspiracy theories, too, — even from family members. Raja’s mother told her she was reluctant to get the shot because she was worried about the speed in which the vaccine was produced and had heard the myth about it altering DNA.

Lewis also swiped nine bags to lead all rookies. Alec Bohm solidified himself as the Phillies’ third baseman of the future by posting a .338 average and a .400 on-base percentage over 44 games.

Raja said she managed to allay her mother’s fears but said it shows the prevalence of high anxiety in many minority communities.

Imams across Britain have also tried to ease fears among their communities. In mid-January, they delivered a sermon during Friday prayers across many mosques urging worshippers to get vaccinated. Some mosques have been turned into pop-up vaccination centers in a further attempt to persuade communities to get the jab.

In Birmingham, leaders of various faiths have come together to discuss how they can best approach the issue. Pastor Emmanuel Adeseko, with New Covenant Ministries, said he has heard plenty of hesitancy among his congregation. But he said he is mindful not to dismiss people’s concerns.

“I've had scenarios where some people have said to me, ‘listen, I don't want to take the vaccine.’ And I said, “OK, that's fine, the door is open if you want to have a conversation.” Because we don't want to be burning bridges in a time where we need every single citizen to be able to work together.”

For Adeseko, the issue is also personal. His father, Nathaniel, died from the coronavirus in Birmingham, last April. Adeseko said his father was a healthy 65-year-old man and his death came as a huge shock.

“It was a very painful experience and it’s still something I'm having to work through, you know, even now.”

Adeseko is hopeful that all the coordinated efforts between religious leaders will have an effect.

MP Lammy said he believes the campaigns are having an impact but also that there’s more to do.

The largest hospital trust in England reported recently that uptake of the vaccine among its Black African, Black Caribbean and Filipino staff has been much lower than other health care workers.

Without all these communities on board, Lammy said, Britain can never truly hope to get a handle on the pandemic.
