A new survey found more parents were willing to immunize their children in mid-September than they were in July, a change that coincided with schools reopening amid a wave of hospitalizations and deaths caused by the highly contagious Delta.

The last monthly survey on attitudes towards vaccines by the Kaiser Family Foundation also found that about one in four American parents report that one of their children had to be quarantined at home due to possible exposure to Covid-19 since the start of the school year.

It is even then that two-thirds of parents say they believe their school is taking appropriate action to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The report suggests that many parents are in conflict over what to do to keep their children both healthy and educated.

The survey found that 58% of parents say schools should have full mask requirements, 35% say there should be no mask warrant, and 4% think only students and staff do not. vaccinated should be required to wear masks, according to the report. . The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that all students, teachers and staff in primary and secondary schools wear masks.

Kaiser conducted a nationally representative survey of 1,519 people September 13-22 – a period of sharp increase in Covid deaths – and was largely completed before Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their vaccine was safe and effective for children ages 5-11. No vaccine is currently authorized in the United States for children under 12 years of age. Of all respondents, 414,349 identified themselves as parents of children 17 years of age or younger and were included in the analysis of parental responses.

The Pfizer vaccine, already in use for older children and adults, was cleared in mid-May for children aged 12 to 15, and the report suggests that over time, parents of children of this age group and up gradually feel more comfortable there. At the time of the September interviews, 48% said their children aged 12 to 17 had received at least one dose, up from 41% in July. According to federal data, 57 percent of this age group received at least one dose.

And maybe driven by a constellation of factors, including the increasing number of children hospitalized because of the Delta variant In addition to seeing older vaccinated children staying healthy, parents of children aged 5 to 11 are increasingly reporting their support for the vaccine as well.

Thirty-four percent of those parents now say they will get their children immunized as soon as they can, up from 26 percent in July.

It should be noted that the share of parents of children aged 5 to 17 who insist that they “certainly will not” get their children vaccinated has hardly changed in months, suggesting that they will be the best. more difficult to convince. In April, 22% of parents in the older cohort, aged 12 to 17, said they definitely would not get their children vaccinated; in September, 21 percent said they had the same view. Parents of younger children are equally adamant: in July, 25% said “definitely not” position, and in September, 24% did.
