Jill Biden and Vivek Murthy Kick Off Tour at TX Children’s Hospital

Texas Children’s Hospital recently hosted Jill Biden and Vivek Murthy, U.S. surgeon general, in one of the first stops on a nationwide tour encouraging parents to vaccinate 5- to 11-year-olds against COVID-19. The first children’s hospital on the tour, which will include schools, churches and town halls across America, Texas Children’s collaborated with the White House to help educate the community on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, newly approved by the CDC for this younger age group.

“Texas Children’s Hospital was tremendously honored to host First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and esteemed members of the U.S. Congress in our vaccine clinic,” said Mark Wallace, Texas Children’s Hospital president and CEO. “Vaccines are our greatest tool to combat the virus and forge beyond the pandemic. We are grateful to do our part to provide our patients and community access to COVID-19 vaccines, leveraging our equitable allocation model that prioritizes those most at risk.”

Texas Children’s also provided free Houston Rockets tickets to families with scheduled vaccine appointments the day of Biden and Murthy’s visit.
