Governor Brad Little says nearly one-third of Idaho seniors have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. But even as more vaccine has become available through retail pharmacies, demand is far outpacing supply.

Today, our panel of medical experts share the best ways to get an appointment for the vaccine once eligible, and answer more of your health questions.

Our panel today:

  • Dr. David Pate, former CEO of St. Luke's Health System and a current member of the Idaho Coronavirus Task Force
  • Dr. Laura McGeorge, St. Luke’s Health System Medical Director, Primary & Specialty Care
  • Dr. Mark Nassir, President, Saint Alphonsus Medical Group
