A majority of American voters have no plans to get the COVID-19 vaccine right away, with a sizable percentage of that group saying they will never get it at all, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Among voters, 65% said they will either "wait and see how it works," that they're "in no particular hurry," or that they "will never take the COVID vaccine."
Just under a third, meanwhile—31%—expressed a wish to be vaccinated "as soon as possible," while 4% were undecided.
COVID-19 vaccine doses began rolling out in the U.S. this month, with frontline healthcare workers and vulnerable elderly populations among the first to receive the novel new medicine.
