Gallup: Willingness To Get COVID Vax Drops To 50%

Just in from Gallup Polling:

Americans’ willingness to be vaccinated against the coronavirus has dropped 11 percentage points, falling to 50% in late September. This sharp decline comes after the percentage dwindled from 66% in July to 61% in August.

Meanwhile, according to Gallup Panel data from Aug. 17-30, the percentage of Americans who are inclined to delay returning to their normal daily activities until a vaccine is available is at a new high of 26%.

Roughly the same proportion of Americans (27%) say they are ready to resume their normal activities right now, matching the average since April. Nearly half are waiting for fewer COVID-19 cases in their state — either for a significant decline in new cases (20%) or until after no new cases emerge (27%).
