Data Collection and Reporting

The objective of this study was to explore the willingness to accept a COVID-19 vaccine in the United States and describe variability in this acceptability by key racial, ethnic, and socio-demographic characteristics. Participants were asked how willing or unwilling they would be to: (1) receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it was made publicly available, and (2) receive the influenza vaccine for the upcoming influenza season. The conclusion of the study was that a substantial proportion of U.S. residents were unwilling to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as one is made publicly available.
