February 2, 2021: COVID-19 Vaccinations with Dr. Michael Saag

Dr. Michael Saag Q&A

You said in November it would take at least 10 months from approval for the vaccine to reach 60-70% of the population. Have you shifted your estimate?

What do you think about the rollout process; can we scale up our supply to fit demand; and when can we expect other frontline workers to receive the vaccine?

Can you describe the body's immunization process and how the vaccine works?

Is it safe for cancer patients undergoing chemo to get the vaccine?

What can educators do to help keep people informed and combat misinformation?

Some test subjects developed COVID-19 after receiving the vaccine. Are we seeing an immunity gap in those receiving the vaccine now?

Are there risks associated with attempted to accelerate the vaccine development process?

What have you learned from your work handling COVID-19 at the University of Alabama-Birmingham?

Are we seeing any additional side effects, and will companies continue to improve their vaccines to address any additional side effects?

The BC “Do Good, Feel Good” campaign is still in motion! This week, we’re reaching out to the Mission at Kern County, which is in dire need of supplies for babies and children, including hand sanitizer, wipes, diapers, and toiletries. These supplies would greatly benefit those in need, including BC’s very own Project HireUp students.

For questions or donations please reach out to Endee Grijalva directly at

Thank you to all who have donated or supported the BC “Do Good, Feel Good” Series, and thank you to Endee Grijalva for leading this wonderful campaign!
