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 (e.g., in Wave 4 (Jun. 3 – Jun. 29, 2022), 35.1% of California caregivers 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. These data are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error is 10 percentage points or greater. The annotation [!] indicates that the estimate’s margin of error is at least 5 percentage points but less than 10 percentage points.
