Abstract

Among 4448/7012 (63.4%) children's hospital clinical and non-clinical staff who responded to an electronic survey, COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy was identified among 18.9% and more prevalent among those who identify as female, Black, and/or Hispanic/Latinx; non-clinical staff; and those with high-risk medical conditions and lower concern for severe COVID-19. We identified specific concerns and communication preferences to guide development of targeted vaccine education and advocacy strategies.
