COVID-19 vaccination, especially, in children has been a point of both political and scientific contention since its inception. The purpose of this project was to qualitatively assess patients' perceptions on COVID-19 vaccination for children between the ages of 5-11 years old using survey data. Understanding our patient's perceptions on why they may or may not support vaccination may guide how we approach discussing the topic. A total of 17 responses were collected from patients between the ages of 18-80 years old, with >75% of patients found to be in support, already vaccinated, or had a vaccine appointment scheduled for their child. The remaining who did not support the vaccine cited "not enough known" or "concerns for side effects" as reasons. This data gives a foundation into why people may or may not support administering the COVID- 19 vaccine to children and how we can start educating the public and guide the conversation when it comes to vaccines.
