Mott Poll September

New from the Mott Poll: 1 in 3 parents plan to skip flu shots for their kids during COVID-19 pandemic

Only 1 in 3 parents believe it is more important for their child to get flu vaccine this year compared to previous years, despite public health recommendations. Among parents who will not seek flu vaccine for their child this year, 1 in 7 say they are keeping their child away from health care sites due to concerns about COVID. Less than half of parents say their child's regular health care provider strongly recommends flu vaccination this year.
