Poll: Many Mass. Residents In No Rush For Vaccine
New poll results show that most Massachusetts residents are willing to take a COVID-19 vaccine, but many want to wait for others to go first.
Overall, 36 percent of respondents to the MassINC Polling Group survey said they plan to take the vaccine right away, while 47 percent say they will wait until after either a few or many people have taken it. Seven percent of respondents said they never will take the vaccines, which are nearing their final approvals, with rollouts expected to occur over several months because of supply constraints.
The results, according the poll sponsors at the Museum of Science, also highlight important racial differences, with 38 percent of white residents saying they will take the vaccine "as soon as possible," compared with 28 percent of Black residents and 22 percent of Latinx residents.
