New Tool Tracks Vaccination and Vaccine Hesitancy Rates Across Geographies, Population Groups
Who is getting a COVID-19 vaccine? Who is hesitant about receiving it and why? What state has the highest vaccination or hesitancy rate?
The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines has been the subject of extensive news coverage and a new U.S. Census Bureau data visualization tool aims to provide insights into the public’s feelings about COVID-19 vaccines in near real time.
Incidentally, when the Less than high school were asked for the January 18th survey, they were 28.8% probably not or definitely not getting vaccine. Bachelor's degree or higher were 12.1% probably not or definitely not getting vaccine.
By August 2, those two groups were 16.7% and 5.4% respectively. In other words of the less educated, 58% were still vaccine hesitant. The better educated but hesitant dropped to 44.6 of their original group's size.
