According to QuoteWizard by Lending Tree, more than 30 percent of parents say they don’t trust what government officials have been saying throughout the course of the pandemic.

The QuoteWizard study reports that roughly 1 in 3 people, which is about 32 percent, don’t believe the vaccine will work on children.

Research shows that South Dakota, Vermont, Montana, Arizona, and Pennsylvania have the highest numbers of people who don’t vaccinate their children.
