The Coronavirus Pandemic: Vaccine Acceptance and Public Attitudes
Facebook Live Q&A with Gillian SteelFisher, Deputy Director of the Harvard Opinion Research Program 
Presented jointly by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and The World from PRX & GBH

As coronavirus vaccinations increase in the United States, questions about vaccine acceptance linger. Drawing from a recent examination of 39 polls, Harvard public opinion expert Gillian SteelFisher discussed public attitudes toward COVID-19 vaccines with The World’s Elana Gordon. Do Americans believe vaccination means a quick return to pre-pandemic normality? Who do Americans trust about vaccine safety? What groups are less likely to say they will get vaccinated? And why is understanding these public opinions critical for the overall sustained success of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in the U.S.?
