Relationship Between the Use of Nonpharmaceutical Interventions and COVID-19 Vaccination Among U.S. Child Care Providers: A Prospective Cohort Study
In a survey of child care workers across the country and Puerto Rico, individuals were asked questions about their own personal health and safety habits (e.g., hand washing) and their classroom health and safety measures (e.g., staff and child symptom screening). Results showed that individuals utilizing fewer personal health safety measures were less likely to be vaccinated, supporting mandated vaccination as a means for pandemic control.
