About 25% of Americans do not intend to take the vaccine against COVID-19

At the same time, slightly more than half of the respondents expressed concern that the vaccine is being developed in a “hurry and at a record pace”. More than 40 percent of respondents believe that the vaccine is more dangerous than the disease itself. Most of the respondents to the survey (4,428 adult U.S. citizens) conducted May 13–19 said they would be heavily influenced by the US Food and Drug Administration or large-scale research showing that the vaccine actually safe and not harmful to health.
About 36 percent of respondents said they would be ready to take the vaccine if US President Donald Trump said that it was safe for health and would not have any side effects. Some experts in this regard have expressed the view that the White House’s emphasis on the speed of vaccine development could make Americans worry much more about safety being sacrificed for speed. In addition, respondents are confused by the fact that an avalanche of misinformation about allegedly already created vaccines became very common on social networks during a pandemic. “It's no surprise that a significant proportion of Americans are not going to take the vaccine because of the terrible stream of reports about it,” said Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, in whose laboratory the vaccine is being developed.

While health experts say a vaccine to prevent infection is needed to bring United States citizens back to normal, the survey points to a potential issue in the credibility of the Trump administration, which is already being criticized for its often conflicting recommendations. compliance with safety standards during a pandemic. In particular, respondents mean that Trump regularly advertises during his daily briefings as “a panacea for COVID-19” for hydroxychloroquine malaria, which scientists have called a dubious medicine for the prevention of coronavirus.

Overall, less than two-thirds of respondents said they were “very” or “somewhat” interested in the vaccine. "This is slightly lower than I thought, despite all the country's attention to COVID-19. I expected to see a vaccine support figure of about 75 percent," said Dr. William Schaffner, an expert on infectious diseases and vaccines, commenting on the results of the survey. at the medical center of the University of Vanderbilt.
Research on vaccine development in the US is proceeding at an accelerated pace, however, experts estimate that at least 70 percent of Americans will still be able to get immunity from coronavirus through the vaccine. Trump promised fellow citizens to produce a vaccine by the end of the year, although it usually takes 10 months to develop it, test for safety and, finally, the production itself. Many experts believe that a fully tested, approved by the governments of the countries vaccine will be available both in the US and in the world, only by mid-2021.

Currently, more than 100 vaccines against COVID-19 are being developed in the world, including some of which are already undergoing clinical trials in humans. Earlier this week, Moderna, an American biotechnology company, announced "potentially promising" preliminary results for eight people infected with coronavirus who are participating in trials of a drug under development from COVID-19.
