More than 40% of parents of young kids say they will not get their child a Covid-19 vaccine, survey finds

July 26, 2022

New survey results published Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation indicate that 43% of parents of children under 5 in the US say they will not get their child vaccinated against Covid-19, the highest percentage in the year that KFF’s Vaccine Monitor survey has been asking the question.

The US Food and Drug Administration authorized Covid-19 vaccinations in children as young as 6 months in mid-June.

According to the KFF data, only 17% of parents of children between 6 months and 5 years old say their child has been vaccinated or will be as soon as possible. Another 27% say they will wait and see how well the shots work in other kids, and 13% said they will vaccinate their child only if required to do so for school or child care.
