Surveys show that more than four in 10 americans reject vaccines: trump’s recommendations are even less convincing

A new Reuters/ipsos poll released on Thursday found that fewer than two-thirds of americans were “very” or “somewhat” interested in getting the vaccine after its introduction.

About a quarter of respondents said they were not interested in getting vaccinated, and more than 40 percent said the vaccine could be more dangerous than the virus itself.

That’s a troubling number because medical experts say about 70 percent of the population needs to be vaccinated or immunized against a previous infection to prevent further spread of novel coronavirus.

The survey also found that 29 percent of respondents said they would be more interested in a vaccine if it were approved by the food and drug administration, but 36 percent said they would be less willing to get it if trump said it was safe.
