They also discussed how several of their patients participated in the trial that helped get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved.

They do not know when they will receive doses of the vaccine yet though.

"This vaccine saves lives and if somebody has access to this vaccine, and they want to take the vaccine, this is a great vaccine to take," Dr. Victor Herrera said.
