Headline: 40% of Parents Not Vaccinated Against Coronavirus

Mr. Seo (41), who lives near San Francisco, was infected with Corona while having a meal with acquaintances last year. Later, his wife and two young daughters were also infected with the virus. Seo and his wife were vaccinated, but their two daughters were unvaccinated.

Still, Mr. Seo says he does not plan to vaccinate his two daughters in the future. He explained the reason, “Above all, I don’t think the vaccine is safe.” Compared to the general vaccine development process, the development period of the corona vaccine was faster, and there were fewer test subjects, so side effects are a concern.

“I think everyone in the family must be immune at this point because they overcame Corona once,” he said.

In speaking with members of the Korean community, it’s clear that there remains lingering distrust of the vaccine, especially when it comes to children and adolescents.
