Nearly 25 Percent of Adults Say They Won't Try to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine
Overall, the poll seems to point to a country on the road to normalcy
With a majority of adult Americans now at least partially vaccinated against coronavirus, roughly a quarter of adults say they will not try to get the shot, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS. That vaccine-hesitant 26 percent is much more willing to return to regular activity, far less confident in the government health officials overseeing vaccine rollouts, and opposed to vaccine requirements for everyday activities.
Overall, the poll seems to point to a country on the road to normalcy, with about 7 in 10 having gotten a vaccine or planning to do so and two-thirds comfortable returning to their regular routines. But there are sharp divisions by vaccine willingness over the role vaccines might play in a return to pre-pandemic life.
In the poll, 55 percent of adults say they have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, while 45 percent have not -- which matches with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) statistics on vaccine distribution. Those who have not yet received a dose at this point are more likely to say that they will not try to get one than that they will seek it out. All told, 26 percent of adults say they will not try to get a coronavirus vaccine, about the same as those who said so in March, while 16 percent say they haven't yet gotten one but will do so.
