The poll, carried in late April of 1,000 respondents and reported on Monday from TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP), reveals that the 26% of Americans who say they don't have immediate intentions to get vaccinated is down somewhat from the 28% who said in another poll in early April that they were not intending to get their shots immediately.
Out of those numbers, TIPP said 38% of Republicans and 34% of independents do not intend to receive a shot soon, with 12% of Democrats showing that they remain hesitant.
The 26% of those polled who explained they don't intend to vaccinate came to two separate groups:
11% say they don't intend to get a vaccine soon.
15% announced they do not plan to ever get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Meanwhile, the vaccine hesitancy was higher among women:
30% of women said they are hesitant.
23% of men said they are hesitating.
13% of women are putting off getting the shot.
17% of women said they have no plans to get the shot.
The poll discovered that mostly people in rural areas, by 41%, stated they have no intentions to get a vaccine any time in the near future. In other numbers of people not thinking about getting a vaccine for now:
High school graduates, 38%.
People earning under $30,000 a year, 35%.
Single women, 31%.
People from the Midwest, 31%.
White women, 31%.
People from the South, 30%.
Women overall, 30%.
People ages 45-64, 30%.
People ages 25-44, 29%.
People with some college education, 28%.
People ages 18-24, 28%.
People earning $50,000 to $75,000 a year, 27%.
White people, 27%.
Black people, 26%.
People earning $30,000 to $50,000 a year, 26%.
In the meantime, the survey discovered that 40% of respondents were completely vaccinated, 18% had their first dose of a vaccine, and 16% were still waiting for a vaccine to become suitable to them.
The people who answered that they are fully vaccinated have gotten both doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single-shot Johnson & Johnson version.
According to the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine Coronavirus Resource Center tally on Monday, 105,403,279 of all Americans are fully vaccinated as of now, or roughly one-third of the population. California has the most people who are fully vaccinated, with 12,636,992 currently having gotten their shots.
Though, specialists explain that it will take over 70% of the population to be immunized before herd immunity can be achieved.
