Abstract
Highlights
:: We developed a brief, three-factor scale for measuring confidence about adolescent vaccination.
:: The scale showed good fit both overall (CFI = 0.97) and across demographic subgroups.
:: Using the scale to assess a national sample of parents, we found that confidence was generally high.
:: However, we found lower confidence among subgroups with lower education or of Hispanic ethnicity.
