Definition: Estimated percentage of adults with caregiving responsibilities for children ages 0-17 whose oldest child is not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, by reasons for not vaccinating child and presence of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) in the household (e.g., in Wave 4 (Jun. 3 – Jun. 29, 2022), 32.8% of California caregivers living in households with one or more CSHCN whose oldest child was not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 had not vaccinated the child fully because of worry about vaccine side effects).
Data Source: Family Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic. (Jun. 2022). Questionnaire: American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Prevent Child Abuse America & Tufts Medical Center; California oversample: Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health & California Essentials for Childhood Initiative (California Dept. of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch & California Dept. of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention).
Footnote: Fully vaccinated children are those who have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or two doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, or Sinovac vaccines. Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition and require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. These data are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The annotation [!] indicates that the estimate’s margin of error is at least 5 percentage points but less than 10 percentage points.
