As a member of Alaska Airlines’ frequent flyer program Mileage Plan, I subscribe to its news updates via email. This afternoon I received a message announcing a virtual event where guests will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive panel session with Alaska Airlines personnel and experts from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington which partners with Alaska Airlines in its response to the virus. Topics will include the latest research on vaccines and strategies for protecting ourselves and each other.

The virtual event is open to all. You can submit questions on the form in this document here. From my posts and others, many have questions about safety of air travel and the efficacy and safety of vaccines. This is a great opportunity to hear from experts on those topics first hand. Any questions must be submitted by the end of the day Pacific Standard Time on November 23, 2020.

Final Thoughts

This seems like a great opportunity to get coronavirus and vaccine information from experts (other than myself of course 😉). I’m planning to listen in and am submitting a question asking why the development of coronavirus vaccines has been so comparatively fast.

Will you tune in?
