Almost one-third of Americans may consider refusing a vaccine for the novel coronavirus, according to a Civic Science survey.
This indicates that 31% of Americans may consider refusing a coronavirus vaccine.
The survey was conducted among 2,900 U.S. adults.
A similar study was conducted in January, and the percent of Americans who would get a vaccine has dropped by 6 points, according to Civic Science. The people who said they are “not at all comfortable” with a vaccination increased by 3 points.
Since the January poll, support among Americans for mandatory and elective vaccinations has gone up from 50% fo 55%. Many of the people who are completely against the vaccine are the ones who would “resume all or most normal activities,” the poll also indicated.
Around 63% of those who would not be vaccinated would resume their normal activities once mandates are lifted, compared to around 18% who would opt to be vaccinated. Many of those who would opt to be vaccinated would remain in quarantine for a further period of time.
Out of those who are unsure whether they’d receive the vaccine, 26% said they’d resume normal activities and 44% would remain in quarantine.
“Vaccine hesitancy is growing amid this pandemic as people may be unsure of how, or if at all, a new immunization could protect us,” Civic Science reported. (RELATED: REPORT: Trump’s Push To Hurry COVID-19 Vaccine Is Called ‘Operation Warp Speed’)
