Poll: More than Half of U.S. Adults Likely to Reject COVID Vaccine

A new survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) shows that a majority of U.S. adults are more likely to not get the Chinese Coronavirus vaccine.

As reported by Fox News, KFF’s COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor poll revealed that 52% of respondents said they were either “probably” or “definitely” not going to take the vaccine. Meanwhile, just 23% said they would “definitely” take the shot, while another 23% said they would “probably” do so.

The majority of those who said they are likely to take the shot are registered Democrats and/or 65 years old or older. On a partisan basis, 70% of Democrats plan to take the vaccine, while just 24% of Republicans plan to do the same.

Further dividing along partisan lines, 58% of Democrats are likely to take extra precautionary steps in avoiding COVID, such as wearing masks, avoiding public gatherings, and skipping travel. Just 16% of Republicans intend to do so.

Despite the poll’s clear findings against the vaccine, the KFF still tried to spin the results as favorable towards the vaccine and medical authorities.

“The poll shows that most of the nation still trusts the CDC and the FDA on vaccines,” said KFF president and CEO Drew Altman. “But there is a partisan gap, and most Republicans don’t trust the nation’s regulatory and scientific agencies responsible for vaccine approval and guidance.”

The survey was conducted between September 6th and September 13th. The sample size consisted of 1,296 U.S. adults, who were polled online and by telephone.
