There’s Not Just One Kind of Vaccine Hesitancy

According to Axios, around 10 percent of Americans aren’t very eager to get the vaccine, but they’re not really hesitant either — they’re just waiting to get it until they get around to it, according to new Harris polling. The findings show that making vaccination more convenient will be a big part of the difficult process of getting more shots in arms, now that many of the most eager Americans have gotten their shots. As of late April, 43 percent of respondents said they’d already gotten a shot, 12 percent said they plan to go to get one the first day they’re able to, 10 percent said they’ll get the vaccine whenever they get around to it, and 21 percent said they will wait a while and see before getting the vaccine. Unfortunately, 14 percent of respondents said they won’t get a vaccine, a number that is virtually unchanged since January. In the real world, about 56 percent of U.S. adults had received at least one shot as of Saturday, per the CDC.
