Do Americans Trust Russia’s “Sputnik V” COVID-19 Vaccine?


Approximately 67% of US adults are wary about trusting Russia’s Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine without proof, according to a new survey of >30 000 Americans.

Earlier this month, Russia became the first country to approve a vaccine against novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), however, the August 11, 2020 announcement was met with global skepticism regarding the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine, called "Sputnik V."

With the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the US approaching 5.8 million and the death toll inching toward 200 000, how trusting are US adults of Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine? To answer that question and more, data science company Piplsay surveyed 30 413 US adults aged ≥18 years between August 18-19, 2020. For more survey insights, click through the slideshow below.
