A new poll from Monmouth University reports that 1 in 4 Americans will refuse offers for coronavirus vaccines, even if it’s for free. Another 21% prefer other people to get the vaccine first before they can decide if they’re getting it too.

The poll, conducted by Monmouth University between February 25 to March 1, reported that the numbers virtually duplicate the results from January (24% and 19%). In addition, 16% of respondents say that they received their vaccination already. Meanwhile, 38% plan to get their shot as soon as they get authorization to do so. 

Herd Immunity is Far Away

Health experts believe that herd immunity will require 70-80% of the population to get vaccines. However, this target remains difficult to achieve as 24% of the population are minors. Presently approved coronavirus vaccines do not have clearance for use by children below 18.  

Bloomberg reports that so far, the US issued a total of 93.7 million vaccine doses. As of last week, US health services administered around 2.15 million doses per day. Despite the rollout of three vaccine brands (Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Pfizer-BioNTech) and an increased rate of daily vaccinations, some Americans remain hesitant about the effects of the coronavirus vaccine.  

Americans Will Refuse Vaccines Based on Party Line

The poll showed that resistance to the vaccine falls under party lines. 36% of Republican Americans will refuse vaccines. 6% of Democrats polled will refuse the vaccine. Surprisingly, 31% of Americans who identified themselves as independent also don’t want to do anything with the vaccine. 

Meanwhile, a bipartisan majority of Americans say they feel generally satisfied with the rollout of coronavirus vaccines. 69% of Democrats and 58% of Republicans, as well as 54% of independents, approved of the rollout. However, the numbers on the degree of satisfaction remain mixed. 18% answered very satisfied while 42% responded with somewhat satisfied. 22% say they feel dissatisfied, and 13% say they feel very dissatisfied. 

Return to Normal 

In addition, the Monmouth poll asked how soon do Americans think they can return to normal pre-pandemic activities. One in five adults (21%) said that normalcy will return by summer. 40% said they think normal will need at least until the end of the year, while 27% think it will take longer. 6% of Americans believe nothing will return to normal. 

“Most Americans feel that ‘normal’ is still many months away and perhaps a little farther down the road than initially hoped for during [President Joe] Biden’s first days in office,” said Patrick Murray. He is the director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Less Worry About Family Getting Sick

The same survey also asked Americans about their levels of worry over infected family members. 40% reported they remain very concerned with the family member over coronavirus.  Meanwhile, 28% reported being somewhat concerned about the virus reaching their families. The results showed a significant decline compared to 47% in September and 50% in November last year. Earlier this year, it hit 60%.

    I will never accept any vaccines from these evil people. They have proven themselves to be communists. The plandimic and vaccine are used for controlling the sheeple who are ignorant of the facts and too lazy to do any research. Wake up sheeple!!!!

    Absolutely nothing is free. Just look up the pharma companies growing profits since 2019 while rest of the working class is losing out. Just because you don’t pay at the time of your shot doesn’t mean we are not paying. We and our generations will be paying for the wasteful behaviors of our politicians!!!!

    This article was written by an idiot or a propagandist. Some of the statements are absolutely hilarious, especially the reasoning about herd immunity.
    What should happen is that anyone keeping the schools closed should be arrested for felony child abuse and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Those in power who are ordering lockdowns and mask mandates should be thrown out of office. We don’t lock up all the law-abiding folk to keep them safe from the criminals and that is how they are handling this, lock up the healthy and let infected folks come over the southern border. The folks in charge are destroying the country. The only question is whether that is their intent of they are just stupid.
