    One in three parents doesn’t intend to have their child vaccinated for the flu this season, according to a new poll, despite the potential threat of a second wave of COVID-19 cases. Health officials have increasingly emphasized the importance of vaccinations this year, in part to limit stress on the health care system during the coronavirus pandemic. If the flu is not controlled, officials say hospitals may become overwhelmed by dealing with both. Despite this, 32 percent of parents say their child is “unlikely” to get a flu vaccine, according to the recent National Poll on Children’s Health. Of them, 42 percent of the parents say they are worried about the side effects of the flu vaccine. Meanwhile, other parents believe that the flu vaccine is not necessary (40 percent) or effective (32 percent). However, roughly 14 percent percent of parents will not seek the vaccine in an effort to keep their children away from health care sites amid the ongoing pandemic. Hundreds of people of mixed political views, religions and cultures protest a mandate from the Massachusetts Governor requiring...

    (CNN) — One-third of American parents have no plans to get their children vaccinated for the flu this year, according to the National Poll on Children’s Health released Monday, despite the very real possibility their child could also catch the deadly Covid-19. In addition, two-thirds of parents don’t believe getting a flu shot for their child is more important this year, despite advice to the contrary from major government organizations and pediatricians. “Children younger than 5 years old — especially those younger than 2 — are at high risk of developing serious flu-related complications,” the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, adding that getting a flu shot during the pandemic — for all ages — is more important than ever. “We may see peaks of flu and COVID-19 at the same time, which could overwhelm the health care system, strain testing capacity and potentially reduce our ability to catch and treat both respiratory illnesses effectively,” said Sarah Clark, associate director of the poll done by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Michigan Medicine, in a statement. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert,...
