«The majority of parents (93%) intended to have their child vaccinated with the 4CMenB vaccine or had already done so […]. A higher proportion of parents of children [less than] 5 years of age did not know whether they would have their child vaccinated with the 4CMenB vaccine. Approximately 75% of adolescents also intended to be vaccinated or had received the 4CMenB vaccine […]. The main reason cited by parents for intending to have or having had their child vaccinated with the 4CMenB vaccine was to protect him/her against meningitis. The desire to be protected against meningitis was also the main reason stated by adolescents who intended to receive or had received the vaccine. General trust in vaccines, the perception that the benefits of the 4CMenB outweighed the risks, and knowing someone who suffered from meningitis were others reasons for vaccination reported by parents and adolescents.» (p. 164) «Parents who were less educated (high school diploma or less) were more worried that their child could contract meningitis when compared with parents with a college or university degree (78%, 62% and 57%, respectively). In addition, among adolescents, more girls than boys were worried about the risk of contracting meningitis (57% versus 29%).» (p. 165)
