Unvaccinated people would prefer to get vaccinated at their doctor’s office

A recently released nationwide poll of more than 12,000 Americans on COVID-19 vaccine uptake done by The African American Research Collaborative (AARC) and the Commonwealth Fund with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson and W.K. Kellogg foundations found that unvaccinated people would prefer to get vaccinated at their doctor’s office and far fewer would prefer other locations. More than half (53 percent) would first choose their doctor’s office followed by a retail pharmacy (17%), a town or county health clinic (13%), and large public vaccination sites (only 10%).

Other important findings:

  • Larger percentages of unvaccinated Black and Native American respondents agreed that discrimination from medical professionals makes them less likely to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Protecting loved ones, supporting local businesses, and restoring social gatherings are among the most popular messages among unvaccinated respondents.
  • Nearly a third of parents say they will not sign up their child for a COVID-19 vaccination when it becomes available.
  • Parents’ concerns about signing up their child for the COVID-19 vaccine largely rest on the safety of the vaccine for children.
