Pew Research Center Reports: U.S. Public Now Divided Over Whether To Get COVID-19 Vaccine
While experts across the country are dedicating endless hours to finding a vaccine for COVID-19, not all Americans are sure they will get the vaccine when it hits the market.
About half of U.S. adults (51%) now say they would definitely or probably get a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 if it were available today; nearly as many (49%) say they definitely or probably would not get vaccinated at this time. Intent to get a COVID-19 vaccine has fallen from 72% in May, a 21 percentage point drop.
Americans are also speculating when the vaccine will be available, with 77% believe it will be approved in the U.S. before its safety and effectiveness are fully understood.
And when asked about the pace of the vaccine approval process, 78% say their greater concern is that it will move too fast, without fully establishing safety and effectiveness, compared with just 20% who are more concerned approval will move too slowly, creating unnecessary delays.
Will you get the vaccine when it hits the markets? Let us know in our poll.
