According to the recent survey released by Caring.com, concerns about the safety of the vaccine were the number one reason why vaccine-hesitant caregivers haven’t decided to get the shot.

We spent the time to talk with caregivers about their fears and related our experiences with getting the vaccine ourselves.”
