  • 68% with K-12 children have either already vaccinated their children or are likely to do so when it is approved for their age group, up from 56% 2 weeks ago
  • 19% indicate their employers are mandating vaccinations, up from 16% 2 weeks ago
  • 33% say Food and Drug Administration full approval will make them likely to take the vaccine, and 43% say their boss requiring vaccinations will make them likely to do so, up from 33% a month ago.

The poll was conducted August 27-30 among 1,071 US respondents.
