CDC Issues Report on Sociodemographic Variation in Early Uptake of COVID-19 Vaccination and Parental Attitudes Toward Vaccination of Children Aged 6 Months to 4 Years

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued, as part of its latest Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), a report on the sociodemographic variation in early uptake of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination and parental attitudes toward vaccination of children aged 6 months to 4 years.  CDC notes that 4% of children aged 6 months to 4 years had received 1 or more doses of COVID-19 vaccine; 59% were unvaccinated, but the parent was open to vaccinating their child; and 37% were unvaccinated and the parent was reluctant to vaccinate.  CDC also noted that among parents open to vaccination, 25% reported receiving a provider recommendation, and 57% were confident of the vaccine’s safety, although confidence of vaccine safety varied by race or ethnicity and household income.  To read the CDC report on the sociodemographic variation in early uptake of COVID-19 vaccination and parental attitudes toward vaccination of children aged 6 months to 4 years, use the first link below.  To access the complete latest CDC MMWR, use the second link below.
