Most parents would give COVID vaccine to their kids - survey

Lloyd Burr 09/12/2021

LISTEN: If you’re a parent of young children, are you planning to get them vaccinated?

A government-commissioned survey has found that a third of parents are unsure about it.

MedSafe has not yet approved the vaccine for 5 to 11-year-olds but is expected to do so by January.

COVID-19 educator Dr Morgan Edwards says while some parents are hesitant, most are not.

“With regards to that particular survey, I think it’s important to look at the fact that two-thirds of parents aren’t hesitant,” she told Lloyd Burr Live.

The survey was conducted in late October/early November, which Dr Edwards says was before it was even approved for rollout in the United States. 

“It was back before it was being used anywhere which I think is really significant to keep it in that context as well.”
