Survey: 62% of Americans Aren’t Currently Vaccinated & They Have No Plans to Obtain the Covid-19 Vaccine
According to a new poll conducted by The Economist and YouGov, 62 percent of those who have not been vaccinated have no plans to acquire any type of Covid-19 vaccine in the future.
The survey discovered that people between the ages of 45 and 64 were the most likely to remain unvaccinated and not receive a Covid-19 shot, with 74 percent of them stating that they do not intend to receive a vaccine in the future and only four percent stating that they will “definitely” receive one of the shots in the future, according to the findings.
Additionally, white women with college degrees were more likely than white women without college degrees to indicate they will never receive a vaccine, with 74 percent of college-educated white women stating that they do not intend to do so, compared to 66% of white women without a college degree.
Approximately 391 people participated in the poll, with 181 men and 210 women answering a series of questions. The survey took into consideration race, age, education level, and socio-economic status while determining the results.
The responses of those who had not been vaccinated in the poll varied depending on their demographics.
A large proportion of Hispanic respondents who are unvaccinated also stated that they have no plans to get vaccinated in the future, with 43 percent stating that they have no intention of ever getting vaccinated.
This compares to 19 percent who stated that they might get a shot of one or more of the vaccines and 17 percent who stated that they will definitely get a shot.
Respondents who earned between $50,000 and $10,0000 per year were the most likely to declare they had no plans to get the shot, with 63 percent stating that they had no plans.
This is in contrast to the 62 percent of unvaccinated people who earn less than $50,000 and the 58 percent of unvaccinated people who earn more than $100,000.
Suburban regions were found to have the largest percentage of unvaccinated people who have no intention of being vaccinated, with 67 percent of those polled stating they had no intention of getting vaccinated.
