U.S. Public Now Divided Over Whether To Get COVID-19 Vaccine

Pew Research

As efforts to develop and test a COVID-19 vaccine spur debate around the timing and release of a federally approved vaccine, the share of Americans who say they would get vaccinated for the coronavirus has declined sharply since earlier this year.

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. 

The share who would definitely get a coronavirus vaccine now stands at just 21% – half the share that said this four months ago.

There are widespread public concerns about aspects of the vaccine development process. On the heels of a pledge from nine pharmaceutical companies to ensure that a potential vaccine would meet rigorous standards, the Center survey finds three-quarters of Americans (77%) think it’s very or somewhat likely a COVID-19 vaccine will be approved in the United States 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.

  1. Who needs a ‘covid vaccine’ when people are taking the killer flu shot either willingly or through coercion

  2. Last month I ran through a hundred cities. Never felt better the bulshit that they’re getting away with is incredible.
    You should see all the employees that are doing the office work that I see everyday, constantly wiping down their desks with Clorox wipes it’s insanity. They’re being told to do it

    1. They are convincing people that everybody is a toxic waste dump, petri dish of microbial infections just cruising around seeking out infectible individuals, and everybody is I N F E C T I B L E!!
      Even a dude in Michigan got assault charges for purposely breathing on a person.
