COVID-19 VACCINE MANDATES: Americans’ Sharp Divide
Live Online Q&A with Robert Blendon, Health Policy Political Expert, and Joanne Kenen, Editor-at-Large for Health Care at POLITICO
Presented jointly with POLITICO

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

A deepening divide along political party lines regarding COVID-19 vaccine requirements raises pressing questions about how the U.S. might pursue flagging vaccination rates. A recently released POLITICO-Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll shows that Americans are sharply divided about whether most private employers or schools should require COVID-19 vaccines as part of reopening efforts. Per the results, Democrats are more likely than Republicans to support vaccination mandates. In this live Q&A, Robert Blendon, Richard L. Menschel Professor of Public Health and Professor of Health Policy and Political Analysis, Emeritus, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Joanne Kenen, Editor-at-Large for Health Care at POLITICO, examined the implications of these political fault lines.
