SAN ANTONIO – Do you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine?

On Friday, June 4, KSAT 12 will be holding a phone bank from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with Dr. Jason Bowling, director of hospital epidemiology from University Health, to answer viewers’ comments, questions and concerns. The phone bank number is 210-351-1363.

“This (vaccine hesitancy) poses a real concern, both to those who choose not to be immunized and for the larger community,” said Dr. Bryan Alsip, chief medical officer at University Health. “The serious adverse health outcomes experienced by people who are infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus are very clear. And, if fewer individuals decide to become vaccinated, it is unlikely that we will reach any significant level of herd immunity.”
