According to Gallup, US parents are less worried that their child will contract Covid-19 than they were 3 months ago. Parents say they are also less concerned about contracting it themselves as well.
Highlights of poll include the following:
- 45% of parents worry child will get Covid-19, down from September's 53%
- 37% of parents worry they will contract Covid-19 themselves, down from 40%
- 63% of parents whose children were vaccinated against Covid-19 worry about their child getting it; but just 17% of those with unvaccinated children are equally worried.
This data was derived from Gallup's probability-based Covid-19 web panel survey, conducted Nov. 29-Dec. 5, just as new information about the Omicron variant of Covid-19 was becoming available.
