The percentage of people who said that they would get a coronavirus vaccine if one becomes available has fallen from 72% in early April to 51%, a Morning Consult poll found.
The weekly poll, which asked U.S. adults about the coronavirus vaccine, found that there was a double-digit decrease of people who said they would get the vaccine among men, women, Democrats, Republicans and people of all levels of education.

In early April, 72% of the public said they would. That share has fallen 21 points, to 51%.

The percentage of people who said they would get the vaccine remained relatively steady, the Morning Consult poll found. In September, however, there was an 8% decrease – coinciding with increased scrutiny towards the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with over 1 in 4 people saying that the FDA’s coronavirus decisions are politically motivated. The president recently said that there could be a coronavirus vaccine available by October. (RELATED: ‘I Would Not Trust Donald Trump’:
