Let's Talk New Mexico 3/11 8am: There’s now a third COVID-19 vaccine available in our state and more New Mexicans than ever are getting called in to get the jab. But how will the process be affected by the state's new goal of getting all K-12 educators and early childhood professionals their first dose by the end of March? And what about kids? Should they get vaccinated?

On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll dive into the newest phase of COVID vaccination with guests from the Department of Health and community health organizations. We'll also talk to disease and vaccine specialists and medical doctors who can answer your questions about COVID-19 and immunization.

And we want to hear from you! Have you registered for your vaccine? Do you have questions about which people, and which health conditions, are being prioritized? Or do you want to know more about the differences between the vaccine options? Are you concerned about the distribution being fair? Maybe you're even wondering if you can get a vaccine sooner? Email LetsTalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show.
