30% of U.S. adults refuse COVID-19 vaccination: poll

A recent poll revealed 30 percent of U.S. adults have not gotten a vaccine against COVID-19 and have no plan to do so, posing questions for the country’s recovery from the pandemic, U.S. television network American Broadcasting Company reported.

Of those who reject vaccination, a broad 73 percent say U.S. officials are exaggerating the risk of the Delta variant, and 79 percent think they have little or no risk of getting sick from the coronavirus, according to the ABC News/Washington Post poll published on Sunday.

U.S. President Joe Biden, health officials and others have described the variant as more contagious than other strains, which poses a substantial risk to unvaccinated people, as the variant now accounts for more than a quarter of new cases in the country.

The report said,It added, “Among those not vaccinated, a growing share [of] 74 percent – up from 55 percent in April – say they probably or definitely won’t get a shot.”
