A quarter of Americans refused to be vaccinated against the coronavirus

Almost one in four Americans would like to refuse to be vaccinated against coronavirus. This is according to data from a survey published by Monmouth University.

Another 50 percent of respondents said they would be willing to get vaccinated at the first opportunity, while 6 percent of those surveyed have already been vaccinated. At the same time, 19 percent of survey participants would like to delay vaccination, and 24 percent would prefer to avoid vaccination.

It also indicates that nearly three-quarters of Democratic Party supporters surveyed (72 percent) would like to get vaccinated. Meanwhile, among Republicans, only 39 percent of those surveyed said they would like to get vaccinated, while 42 percent of Republican Party supporters would prefer not to get vaccinated. Just over half of respondents without a political preference were willing to be vaccinated – 51 percent.

On February 2 it became known that the number of people vaccinated against the coronavirus in the United States exceeded the number who were infected with the virus. According to Bloomberg, an average of about 1.34 million people in the United States are vaccinated against the coronavirus per day. However, only 1.8 percent of Americans have so far received both doses of the vaccine.
