The FDA today could approve Pfizer’s vaccine for the coronavirus, and it could give the green light next week for Moderna’s version. That would mean Central New Yorkers could start getting the shots in about 10 days.
But a new study shows Americans may not be ready to embrace the vaccine. About 25% of American adults are unsure they want to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to a poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, and another 25% are certain they won’t. Many want to wait and see how the early vaccinations go before signing up. Scientists estimate at least 70% of the U.S. population needs to be vaccinated to reach the desired herd immunity that will eradicate Covid-19.
What about you? Will you get the vaccine as soon as it’s available to you? Or will you wait and see? Take the poll:
Previous poll: We asked readers the same question many of us ask each year at the time: Do we get a real Christmas tree or go artificial? Nearly 59% are sticking with real trees because of the fresh smell and the memories of getting the live pine tree. 41% stick with the tree stored in a box in the basement.
