PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Health Systems and Pittsfield Community Television (PCTV) will present a live one-hour program on the COVID-19 vaccine and an experimental treatment option being used widely in the Berkshires to help prevent advancement of the disease in higher risk populations.

"BHS Community Conversation: A Closer Look at COVID-19 Treatment and Vaccines," will air live on PCTV, WTBR-FM and the PCTV Facebook page on Friday, Feb. 5, at 2 pm. The program will be aired as a live version of the monthly Berkshire Health Program on PCTV, hosted by Dr. Rebecca Caine.

The guest for the program will be James Lederer, MD, BHS Chief Medical Officer and Chief Quality Officer, and a board certified specialist in Internal Medicine and Adult Infectious Disease. Dr. Lederer will answer questions on the COVID-19 vaccine and monoclonal antibody therapy, an experimental but highly successful outpatient treatment for those for those who meet specific criteria and are at high risk for advancement of the disease.
