A majority of Israeli parents — 57 percent — would agree to vaccinate their 5- to 11-year-olds if the FDA approves Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine for this age group, according to a poll that was released today.

In a press release, Bar-Ilan University says the survey found “significant differences” in attitudes among those polled, with men, parents older than 40, those with academic agrees and people with higher incomes all more likely to back vaccination.

The survey was conducted between September 23 and October 3 and included 894 months and fathers. No margin of error was given.
