Questions about COVID-19 vaccines?Nothing is more precious than our children, so I understand why many parents will have questions about kids and COVID-19 vaccination. 

That’s why ADHS has enlisted medical and public health experts to answer parents’ questions in a town hall-style video we plan to make available Wednesday, Nov. 17, on our social media channels and through partner organizations. The experts include Dr. Richard Carmona, 17th U.S. Surgeon General and special adviser to ADHS and Governor Ducey on public health preparedness in addition to being a medical doctor. We also plan to have experts available to answer these questions in Spanish.

Parents, we need your help to make this happen. If you have a question you’d like answered by our experts, please follow this link to submit it by 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9.  

If you would like an individual answer to your question, please leave an email address, though that isn’t required. If you are willing to record a video asking your question, there’s a place for you to leave contact information. 

With the protection of COVID-19 vaccination now available to all kids ages 5-and older, we want you to get your questions answered, if not by our experts then by your healthcare provider. 

In a recent post, I explained why it  is so important for kids to get vaccinated against COVID-19, including the 645,000 Arizona children ages 5 to 11. 

If you’ve made the  decision to have your child vaccinated, you’ll find hundreds of convenient providers at This site allows you to limit your search to pediatric vaccine providers. 

Information is power, for parents and everyone else. I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to get your questions answered about COVID-19 vaccination.
