Study suggests parents unlikely to vaccinate children; Pfizer vaccine expected to be approved soon
A recent study suggests that most parents are unlikely to vaccinate their children against COVID-19. This comes as Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine is expected to be approved for kids by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention early next week.
That means 28 million children as young as 5 could soon be eligible to get the shot in the coming days.
A new survey came out this morning that suggests that may not happen too soon.
The study, published by the Kaiser Family Foundation, shows that 73% of parents don't plan to vaccinate young children against COVID-19 right away.
Public health leaders say vaccinating children could help end the pandemic but only if parents decide to get them vaccinated.
