ABSTRACT

COVID States Project: A 50-State COVID-19 Survey, Report #71: Childhood COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake and Intentions   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Document: "In early November 2021, children ages 5-11 were authorized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccine, making an additional 28 million children [hyperlink] eligible for the shot. Given this significant advancement in COVID-19 vaccine availability - particularly in light of recent concerns over the Omicron variant - in this report we examine parent-reported COVID-19 vaccination intentions and uptake for children. Below, we examine reported childhood vaccination rates by childhood age and across different parent demographic subgroups. Additionally, we report parents' expressed likelihood of vaccinating their children against COVID-19 across five survey waves from February, April, June, September, and November 2021."
