Maine Community Action Partnership: Did You Know?


Did you know that almost half of parents surveyed say they are more concerned about the COVID-19 vaccine than they are of the vaccine itself?  That’s an alarming statistic, but a full 71% of all parents said they would be more likely to get their child vaccinated if in-person school could be “normal”.

This information offers us opportunities to educate parents and their kids about the benefits of the vaccine. A study by the de Beaumont Foundation has found the most effective messaging when addressing these concerns:

Vaccinating children can help the country reach herd immunity and can protect children from the mental and physical effects of lockdowns and other restrictions.

Parents can protect their children from needing hospitalization or have lasting COVID-19 symptoms. There are documented deaths in children due to COVID-19, and the long-term impact of the virus remains unknown.

Medical science has proven that other vaccines keep dangerous diseases and viruses away from our children. The COVID-19 vaccine is no different.

Vaccinated children can go back to school – in person and without masks – to get the education they want, need, and deserve.

We hope you find this information helpful when speaking to your patients.
