Many pediatricians are willing to help administer COVID-19 vaccines.

Now the American Academy of Pediatrics is advocating for them to get permission to do so.

The AAP says pediatricians are experienced in safely vaccinating large numbers of children, teen, and young adults and that they could also administer COVID-19 vaccines to parents and other adults.
