In a recent poll by Gallup, more Americans say they will take the coronavirus vaccine. Here is the news reported by chron.com.

Will Americans take the COVID-19 vaccine once it’s available? According to a recent Gallup poll, the answer is yes.

A whopping 63 percent of Americans surveyed said they would get an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine if offered—a marked increase from 50 percent who answered affirmatively in September, according to a new poll released Tuesday by Gallup. The findings of the online survey held from Nov. 16-29 came after positive news of a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine that proved to be 90 percent effective in phase three clinical trials, according to Gallup.

Americans’ comfort level in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine dropped in mid-to-late September, according to Gallup, following news of an AstraZeneca trial that was stopped due to adverse reactions reported from participants.

A sharp rise in Americans’ willingness to get the vaccine began at the end of October. Breaking it down even further, the survey shows that 68 percent of those in the 18-44 age group say they would get the vaccine, along with 74 percent of those 65 and older.

The survey also found that men were more likely to get the vaccine than women, with 66 percent of men responding they would versus 60 percent of women. An even bigger question we might ask is: Will Americans be required to get the vaccine to participating in everyday life? According to Grace Hauck with USA Today, experts weigh in with the answer for some being yes.
