Nearly 2/3 of U.S. parents won’t vaccinate their children against H1N1

(Examiner.com – 9/30/09) by Meredith Jameson

A new poll by Consumer Reports shows that most American parents will either hold off on vaccinating their children against the H1N1 (swine flu) virus or won’t vaccinate them at all.

Nearly 2/3 of the parents who responded to the poll said that they’d either wait or refuse the vaccine. 50% said that they would wait to vaccinate their children, mostly due to concerns about side effects of the vaccine. 35% said that they would definitely vaccinate their children.

43% of the parents said that they weren’t overly worried about their children contracting H1N1, and an equal amount said that other parents were overreacting.

The poll had a 3% margin of error.

Over 1500 people responded to the telephone poll between September 2-7.

The results, if accurate, mean that some of those who are most vulnerable to the swine flu are going to be unprotected against it.

Parents, will you get the H1N1 vaccine for your children? For yourself? What about the seasonal flu shot?
