About The Study: Researchers found in this survey study that adolescents were more likely to have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose if they had also received at least one human papillomavirus (HPV), meningococcal conjugate, and/or tetanus, diphtheria, and a cellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine dose. Addressing hesitancy about routine childhood vaccinations may reduce hesitancy about COVID-19 vaccines. 

Authors: Cassandra Pingali, M.P.H., M.S., of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, is the corresponding author.
