In this data snapshot, author Sarah Boege reports that by March 29, one-quarter of U.S. adults reported that they had already received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, 39.1 percent hadn’t yet been vaccinated but reported that they will “definitely” get one when available and another 17.4 percent said that they “probably” will. However, 10.1 percent of adults will “probably not” and 8.2 percent will “definitely not” get a vaccine.
These data suggest that a large majority of adults could be vaccinated in the coming months, but experts see risks in having a sizeable group remain unvaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are also not yet widely available to children and youth under 16 years old.
