From the Summary: "Consumers expressed concern about the Delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] potentially causing more severe illness. While this was a motivating factor for some consumers to get vaccinated, others felt the variants were a sign of the virus becoming endemic, decreasing the perceived importance of vaccination. As the United States continues to return to prepandemic-style life, some consumers expressed concern that employer- or education-based vaccination requirements and proof-of-vaccination systems to attend large events or travel infringed on their individual liberties. Consumers were divided, with some claiming that that [sic] those who are vaccinated do not need to worry about the vaccination status of others. Finally, concerns about myocarditis and pericarditis following mRNA [Messenger Ribonucleic Acid] COVID-19 vaccination were widespread. More information about consumers' perceptions and opinions regarding myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination can be reviewed in the Rapid COVID-19 State of Vaccine Confidence Insights Report [hyperlink], released on June 29, 2021."
