As the US vaccination rate continues to rise, so do the mood and activity level of American adults, according to results of the most recent Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index, published March 23, 2021.
According to the survey, 36% of American adults have received a vaccination, an increase of 11% from just 2 weeks ago. The uptick is still being driving by older adults (in the 65+ and 50-64 age groups) but availability is being steadily opened to younger populations.
And yet, while 9 in 10 Americans say either they or someone they know has received a vaccine, the number of those who are "not at all likely" to receive one of the vaccines now available has remained steady at about 1 in 5. Reasons for not getting a shot continue in a familiar vein - not enough research, lack of trust (in the vaccine, the government) and/or feeling healthy enough so as not to need immunization.

These data are from the Wave 42 Axios/Ipsos Poll, conducted March 19th to March 22nd, 2021. The poll is based on a nationally representative probability sample of 1,001 general population adults age 18 or older. The Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index was initiated on March 13, 2020.
