Bonjour Susan ! Usually in French, you will need to repeat articles after "et", but in this specific expression, the form you mentioned is actually more colloquial, though "Vous avez des frères et des sœurs ?" would be perfectly correct too. À bientôt !
It's important to know what's colloquial! Merci, s.
