Fewer Americans Oppose Getting COVID-19 Vaccines, New Poll Says
Only 20% of the U.S. adults are not likely to get a COVID-19 vaccine, a significant drop from 34% back in March, according to a poll from the Axios-Ipsos Index. Those who answered in hard opposition to getting the vaccine recorded a new low of 14%.
The poll also reported that 69% of Americans answered that they wear a mask sometimes or all the time.
According to the poll, the most important factor for the shift was neither the delta variant nor the FDA’s approval of the Pfizer vaccine – it was increased vaccine mandates from employers.
The report also says that the kids returning to school have also played a major role in changing their attitudes towards vaccines.
The country is experiencing a huge surge of COVID-19 this summer due to the delta variant.
The White House reported that at least 75 percent of all adults in the U.S. have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
