Well, fellow anti-vaxxers, looks like we're gonna need a bigger boat.... ONLY 27% of Americans say they WOULD (doesn't mean will, would brings in conditions, I would... IF) take the brand new, wet behind the ears, greenhorn, new kid on the block, untested, experimental Coronavirus vaccine that may or may not ever even see the light of day. YouTuber and child Re-home-girl Myka Stauffer is rumored (we're kidding) to say she will only take the vaccine during an unboxing segment at $1.00 per view. A plurality is simply the largest number in a poll - it does not mean a majority. The article also neglects to point out the MMR uptake is high because it is on the pediatric schedule.
From ABC News:
27% unlikely to be vaccinated against the coronavirus; Republicans, conservatives especially: POLL
Unpersuaded by more than 100,000 pandemic deaths in the United States, 45% of strong conservatives, four in 10 Republicans and nearly as many evangelical Christians say they’d be unlikely to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, even for free.
Overall, 27% of adults in an ABC News/Washington Post poll say they definitely (15%) or probably (12%) would not get the vaccine. Among them, half say they don’t trust vaccines in general, while nearly a quarter don’t think it’s needed in this case.
A plurality definitely would get vaccinated (43%) and 28% say they probably would. The net, 71%, is much higher than the adult vaccination rate for the standard seasonal flu – 45% in the 2018-19 flu season, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (with a wide range by state, from 34 to 56%.) It’s much lower than the 2017 child vaccination rates for polio and measles/mumps/rubella, 93 and 92%, respectively. Read more at the link below.
