Public Health Implications
In a survey conducted after emergency use authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 years, we found that many parents were vaccine hesitant. Greater efforts are needed to increase parental awareness about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccination to foster vaccine confidence, acceptance, and uptake.
We thank the survey participants.
