This polarization may be related to our next survey finding, which asked people about their plans to get vaccinated.
Less than half of the population plans to get vaccinated
When asked whether they expect to take a COVID-19 vaccine within the first few months it becomes available, 48% of respondents said yes.
50% are optimistic about herd immunity and believe that enough of the U.S. population will get vaccinated to successfully control the spread of COVID-19 and end the pandemic.
Certain demographics are more reluctant to get vaccinated
African American people and women are less likely to take a vaccine within the first few months it becomes available.
On the other hand, older people skew towards being receptive to getting the vaccine, which makes sense given they are higher-risk.
