  • 41% of Americans not willing to get vaccinated for Covid, poll shows

A new poll shows that over 40 percent of Americans are not willing to get vaccinated for the coronavirus vaccine.

A Harvard CAPS-Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Monday also showed that 33 percent do not believe that vaccines are effective.

"The single most concerning number in this moths poll is that 4 in 10 of those who have not been vaccinated do not want to take the vaccine. This includes 60 percent of Black voters," Harvard CAPS-Harris polling director Mark Penn said.

The poll also found that 66 percent are concerned about side-effects of the Covid vaccines.

Federal health officials said that cases and deaths are back on the rise in the country.

“Recent declines in cases have leveled off,” said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rochelle Walensky. “These data are evidence that our recent decline appears to be stalling.”

Over 513 thousand people have died so far due to contracting the coronavirus with more than 28 million cases reported.
