Most parents are hesitant to have their children under five vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus, a Economist/ The YouGov survey published this week has been found.
The survey asked parents of children under five if they planned to have their youngest children vaccinated.
A majority, 52%, said they did not vaccinate their children or were “not sure”. Of the 52%, specifically, 34% said they “won’t” immunize their children, and 17% said they weren’t sure. Forty-eight percent, however, said they planned to do so.
The survey was conducted from April 30 to May 2, 2022 among 1,500 adult US citizens.
This coincides with a KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor survey, which found that only 18% of parents are eager to get their youngest children vaccinated.
Like Breitbart News reported:
Survey finds only 18% of parents of children under five say they will have their child vaccinated “right now.” Another 38% said they would “wait and see”, while 27% said they would “definitely not” get their child vaccinated. A further 11% said they would only do so “if necessary”.
