The COVID-19 pandemic has brought numerous stressors for youth in foster care and recent foster care alumni, particularly those who are also parenting young children. In order to better understand the nuances of vaccination attitudes among this population, we conducted in-depth, semi-structured focus groups and interviews with 23 parenting youth with foster care histories.
This webinar provides an overview of the study findings and includes a panel discussion of recommendations and digital health communication related to COVID-19 among young adults.
