Vaccination Status Of Children Complicates Travel Outlook 

In its latest tracking study of American travellers, Longwoods International reports that Americans with children under 18 are split on both their children’s vaccination status and how comfortable they feel travelling as a family.

A third of family travellers have no concerns about travelling with their unvaccinated children, while a quarter do have worries about taking their unvaccinated children on trips.

Additionally, a quarter of family travellers have children who are fully or partially vaccinated and they have no hesitation about them travelling, while a similar percentage does have concerns about travel with their children even though they are fully or partially vaccinated.

Amir Eylon, president and CEO of Longwoods International, said of the findings that: “The battle between the coronavirus and vaccinations is constantly evolving, with the latest wrinkle being the vaccination status of children.”

Eylon continued: “As vaccinations become available for younger and younger age groups, parents are divided on the relative safety of travelling with both vaccinated and unvaccinated children.”

With international borders reopening around the globe, not all Americans are rushing to travel abroad.

In fact, about half of American travelers report that they are either unlikely to or definitely not travelling internationally in the next 12 months, while only just under one third say they are likely to or definitely will travel abroad in the same time period.
