Establishment of the Dorothy Oliver and Drucilla Russ-Jackson Vaccine Lecture

The UAB Department of Microbiology, Immunology Institute, and American Society for Microbiology Student Chapter are honored to establish the annual Dorothy Oliver and Drucilla Russ-Jackson Vaccine Lecture. Dorothy Oliver, a retired Alabama woman, and county commissioner, Drucilla Russ-Jackson were instrumental in increasing vaccination efforts in rural Alabama. "The Panola Project" resulted in almost all of the 344 residents in Panola, Alabama receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Ms. Oliver and Russ-Jackson's efforts have made national headlines including The New Yorker and People Magazine.
