Medical News Day has just ended, so we’ve put together a few interesting statistics on the effects of the latest vaccine for COVID-19.
Read more about the 19 vaccines.
A survey of parents of children under 18 showed that about a third of parents said they had no plans to vaccinate their children, and most parents were concerned about the impact of the vaccine on their families.
Parents were also concerned about what the vaccine might do to their children’s health.
About half of the parents in the survey said they didn’t know if they would be vaccinated.
According to the study, the vaccine is expected to prevent the development of COVID in more than two-thirds of children.
Parents in the study were asked if they thought the vaccine would help them or their children.
Almost three-quarters of parents (72%) said they thought that they or their child would benefit from the vaccine.
More than half of parents who said they were not vaccinating their children said that they did not want to vaccine their children in the future.
Among parents who did vaccinate, nearly a third (34%) said that the vaccine was not worth the cost compared to the benefits.
Overall, nearly two-in-three (27%) parents who have been vaccinated said that vaccines were more effective in preventing COVID than other vaccines.
About two-quarters (72%, a 7% increase since the last survey) of parents reported that their children were not fully vaccinated against COVID, with about half of those parents not vaccining their children at all.
Another survey of 718 parents revealed that most parents do not want their children to get vaccinated, with only 14% saying that they would vaccinate if their child was diagnosed with COVID.
Parents who said that their child had been vaccinated had the highest likelihood of saying that their next child would be protected from COVID (45%).
The majority (54%) of parents also said that vaccinating a child would not be beneficial.
While some parents who are not vaccinators may be concerned about vaccine efficacy, the survey found that more than three-in, or more than 6 in 10, of parents were positive about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines, even though parents were less likely to report being concerned about how the vaccines might affect their children or other children.
The vaccine was also found to have positive impact on the health of parents in a number of areas.
Nearly half of pediatricians and other pediatric health care providers who received the vaccine said that it was the most effective vaccine for their children and their childrens health.
More than one-third (37%) of pediatrician and other health care provider mothers said that a vaccine had been administered to their child, and one-quarter of pediatric nurse practitioners reported that they had vaccinated their child.
About half of all pediatrician/other health care practitioners said that vaccination had saved their childs life.
One-third of pediatric and other healthcare providers said that after the vaccine, their children felt safer and more at ease in their own skin, and more often were comfortable with the person they were interacting with.
Of the parents who were vaccinated, roughly one-in (1%) reported having experienced significant adverse reactions after the vaccination.
Parents were also asked if their children had received the vaccination for a specific reason.
Nearly half (47%) of mothers reported that a parent had received a vaccine for a condition or condition that was not associated with COV-19, including headaches, fever, sore throat, joint pain, cough, and ear infections.
Only 17% of mothers and 31% of fathers reported that the vaccination had not been beneficial.
About half (48%) of adults who received a dose of the coronavirus vaccine in the United States reported that it made them feel less anxious, while nearly half (45%) of those who had received two doses of the vaccination reported that those who received two dose had a decreased fear of people.
Most parents who had not received a coronavir shot had a positive reaction to the vaccine (88%) compared to parents who received one dose (76%).
Overall about half (49%) of people who had been exposed to the virus had a negative reaction to coronaviral vaccine, while about one-fifth (21%) of the people who received no vaccine reported that there was a negative response to the coronasovirus vaccine.
