Of the 1,056 adults who participated, one in five have no interest in getting the vaccine. 31% said they were not sure if they wanted the vaccine when it becomes available. One participant admitted they were afraid of side effects despite not being personally opposed to vaccinations. The survey also says that 61% of people believe a COVID-19 vaccine will debut sometime next year. President Trump has promised that by January 2021, there will be 300 million doses of a vaccine.
