The new coronal vaccine is undoubtedly one of the hottest topics of covid-19. At present, several candidate vaccines have entered the critical development stage. Through this stage of research, researchers will be informed whether these vaccines can effectively resist the new coronavirus and use them safely. A few days ago, the trump Administration issued an emergency authorization for the use of plasma therapy, and some worried that the same could happen to vaccines.
In the United States and Europe, three vaccines have reached phase III, while others are expected to announce the final phase of the study in the coming months. At least three vaccines have entered the final stage in China, and Russia also has its own experimental vaccines.
A new poll found that two-thirds of Americans would not be vaccinated when the covid-19 vaccine was first launched, a significant increase compared with the previous survey.
According to a survey of 1000 U.S. users by USA Today / Suffolk over the weekend, two thirds of respondents said they would not take the vaccine as soon as it was launched, and a quarter said they would never be vaccinated. And 44% of respondents said they would not be vaccinated until others received the vaccine.
Among the respondents who said they would be vaccinated, 27% said that they would be vaccinated once the vaccine was launched, and another part (6%) said that they had not yet decided. People over the age of 75 are most likely to say they will be vaccinated, but those under 24 say they will be vaccinated immediately or will decide based on the results of other people's vaccinations.
Up to 86% of Democrats and 61% of Republicans will be vaccinated at some point in time, while the proportion of men and women is the same. The poll also showed Hispanic voters (17%) and black voters (15%) were less willing to get vaccinated as soon as possible than white voters (31%).
If the government imposed vaccination ,41% of respondents would not be vaccinated, while 50% would agree to the vaccination. However, in a recent speech, Fauci explained that the government would not be able to force COVID-19 vaccination.
