In contrast, about 23 percent of black Americans said they would not receive the vaccine; As did 23% of White Americans and 20 percent of Hispanic Americans, the survey indicated.
In the network’s “Face the Nation” program, Drs. Marcella Nunz-Smith, who heads a new federal task force on health equity, called the voting results “great news”. “You see that vaccine confidence is growing in all groups across the country,” Dr. Nunz-Smith said. “It is very promising.”
Still, polarized attitudes aligned with political affiliation have brought rigor: About 71 percent of Democrats said they were vaccinated or would get shots, while only 47 percent of Republicans said so. One-third of Republicans said they would say no to the vaccine, compared to only 10 percent of Democrats.
Dr. Fauci said that he was concerned and disturbed by the partisan trend. “It makes absolutely no sense,” he said. “We’ve got to separate political persuasion from common-sense, non-brainer public health things.”
On “Fox News Sunday” Drs. Fauci was asked about Public-service message on vaccination Which included other former presidents, but Donald J. Not trump. He was then asked whether Mr. Trump, who was vaccinated quietly in January before he stepped down, should publicly support the vaccination.
Dr. “I think it will make all the changes in the world,” said Fauci. If he came out and said, go and get vaccinated, it is really important for the health of your health, your family and the country, it seems absolutely inevitable that most people who are close followers of him will listen to him. “
On February 28, in an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Mr. Trump said, “Everyone should get your shot,” But the message was largely ignored by the former president’s characteristic focus on divisive political matters.
