Disparities in vaccination rates also persist for African-American children and those living in poverty. Nearly half of US pregnant women are covered by Medicaid, but data […]

The COVID-19 pandemic has reduced access to children’s preventive care across the country, with some providers reporting a 70 to 80 percent decrease in well-child visits, and far fewer children receiving vital in-person services, such as immunizations.
