An estimated 68% of U.S. adults intended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine when surveyed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in December, up from 61.9% in September.

Among priority groups for vaccination, intent to receive a vaccine increased 17.1 percentage points for adults aged 65 and older, 8.8 points for essential workers, and 5.3 points for adults under 65 with underlying medical conditions. Adults who are younger, women, Black, live in nonmetropolitan areas, have less education or income, or lack health insurance were most likely to say they did not intend to get vaccinated.

Concern about safety and side effects was the most common reason for not intending to get a vaccine or for waiting. “Ensuring high and equitable vaccination coverage among all populations, including by addressing reasons for not intending to receive vaccination, is critical to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and bring an end to the pandemic,” the authors said.
