With so much confusing information out about the new COVID-19 vaccines, the COVID Task Force from Trinity UMC in Homewood (South Central District) produced a video of a Q&A time with UAB vaccine specialist Dr. Paul Goepfert. Dr. Goepfert is a professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at UAB. As the Director of the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic at UAB, he oversees clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines.
To develop this Q&A session, Trinity UMC’s COVID Task Force collected questions regarding COVID-19 vaccines from the Trinity congregation. Dr. Jim Williams, a member of the Trinity UMC COVID Task Force, then interviewed Dr. Goepfert and presented the congregation’s questions to him.
Trinity UMC originally produced this video in an effort to better educate its congregation and community. The church now has offered to graciously share this timely resource with others in the North Alabama Conference.
This in-depth Q&A is approximately 55 minutes long.
