1 in 3

23%
7% say they would get vaccinated “only if required” for work, school or other activities. 15% say they definitely will not get vaccinated. This group is disproportionately rural and Republican.
26%
A new COVID-19 vaccine that requires 1 shot instead of 2 is now available in the US, and that could make a difference to some in the “wait-and-see” mode now. A quarter of that group say a 1-dose vaccine would make them more likely to get vaccinated.
