As with previous panels, there will be short informational presentations provided at the beginning of the session by Krall, Smith and Cataldi followed by a question-and-answer segment.
Steamboat Pilot & Today Editor Lisa Schlichtman will moderate the panel, and questions can be emailed to Schlichtman at email@example.com.
The vaccine series of panels is being held in partnership with Steamboat Pilot & Today, the city of Steamboat Springs and Routt County.
