What is this research study about?
We want to learn more about what factors affect vaccine uptake for these children and their siblings. We also want to find out what concerns parents of children with neuro-developmental disorders might have about getting their children vaccinated. We hope this information will help us develop better ways to support parents to make their vaccination decisions and access vaccination services more easily.
