Nearly one-third of caregivers for children with a history of cancer are hesitant about the COVID-19 vaccine.

That's according to a Duke survey of 130 caregivers of childhood cancer survivors.

There were 21% of survey respondents who expressed hesitancy to vaccinate themselves, and 29% were wary about vaccinating their kids.

Caregivers say the main reason for hesitation is the fast development of the vaccine and insufficient data on how it affects children with cancer.
