30% Of U.S. Adults Are Still Unvaccinated
Some Americans resistant to getting vaccinated against Covid-19 could be persuaded to get a jab by easing access, coaxing by family and friends and addressing safety concerns—while free incentives to get the shot aren’t as persuasive, new research suggests.
A survey by the Deloitte Center of Health Solutions, conducted August 13-27 that included 1,200 unvaccinated U.S. adults, found 34% would likely get the shot if it was offered during a routine doctor’s appointment, including 17% of those who say they “refuse” to get vaccinated.
They said they’d be more likely to get vaccinated under scenarios like a mobile vaccine clinic coming to their neighborhood (46% of people on the fence about the vaccine and 14% who refuse it), a health care provider administering the vaccine to them at their home (45% and 16%), if the vaccine was being offered at a store they were already shopping at (48% and 15%) and if they “happened to walk by a vaccine site that had appointments available” (46% and 15%)
