ABSTRACT

COVID-19 State of Vaccine Confidence Insights Report 8 (April 27-May 10, 2021)   [open pdf - 858KB]

From the Summary: "CDC's [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] recent announcements of expanded guidance for fully vaccinated people was met with confusion in the news media and among consumers online. Unanswered questions about the implications of new guidance may undermine trust in COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccines and the U.S. vaccination system. To confront lagging vaccination rates, states and jurisdictions are employing novel tactics to reduce remaining access barriers and add incentives to reward vaccination. The overall effect of these novel tactics on vaccine uptake for unvaccinated adolescents and adults is still unknown. Online discussion of incentives is polarized, with some people welcoming the developments and others feeling suspicious of them which could be a threat to vaccine confidence for some. Lastly, consumers are receiving bills for COVID-19 vaccination, even though COVID-19 vaccines are free and are offered regardless of insurance or immigration status."
