Most Americans Interested In Receiving A COVID-19 Vaccine

A new Newsy/Ipsos poll finds most Americans are interested in getting an FDA-approved vaccine for the coronavirus, but some skepticism remains.

69% of Americans surveyed said they were interested in the vaccine, while 24% said they were not.

White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx called that number encouraging, saying: “I think having that many say that now, when they haven’t seen the efficacy and the safety profile yet, just tells me that that’s our starting point and as we get out information on how effective the vaccines are and how safe the vaccines are, that says that number is only going to go up from there.”

People without a college degree and non-White Americans were less interested in getting vaccinated. Vaccine skepticism and anti-vaccine rhetoric is nothing new, but public health experts worry that it may be getting worse during the coronavirus pandemic
