Survey: Americans are Emerging, Vaccinated or Not

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.
