“Among unvaccinated adults, 31 percent surveyed in May said they would be more likely to get a coronavirus vaccine following full FDA approval, a <a ” href=”https://www.kff.org/coronavirus-covid-19/poll-finding/kff-covid-19-vaccine-monitor-june-2021/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Kaiser Family Foundation survey found. Other studies found similar results, according to Gabriel Sanchez, a political science professor and founder of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Endowed Chair in Health Policy at the University of New Mexico.
He cites the American COVID-19 Vaccine Poll from the African American Research Collaborative, which “found that 28 percent of unvaccinated Americans noted that they were concerned that the Biden administration was pushing the vaccines too quickly without proof that they are safe.”

“Also during [a virtual event sponsored by the Alliance for Health Policy], Henry Fernandez, CEO of the African American Research Collaborative, which recently polled more than 12,000 people regarding their attitudes on vaccination, was asked whether he thought that the FDA’s granting of full approval to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was likely to result in more people being vaccinated.
Fernandez said he didn’t see that approval per se would convince people, but that the employer and government mandates that are likely to follow full approval would have an impact.”

“AARP commissioned Precision Market Research, Latino Decisions, and the African American Research Collaborative to conduct the study, where 2,808 American adults participated. The study focused on Black and Latino adults.
The researchers concluded that education is critical in helping consumers spot and avoid scams. However, the survey indicated that Educational efforts about scams and fraud might underserve Black adults compared with white and other racial groups.

“The American COVID-19 Vaccine Poll, a new national survey focused on overcoming obstacles to full and equitable vaccination coverage, has a large oversample of Native Americans (n = 1,920) and provides needed data to inform the next phase of vaccination outreach for Native communities across the country…
Native Americans are often left out of national surveys like this one, either altogether invisible or delegated to an “other” category. The inclusion of a large Native American population in this study is therefore quite notable, as it provides insight into what is needed to overcome vaccine hesitancy among Native Americans across the US.”

“More than half of unvaccinated Americans said if they had an option, they would prefer to get a Covid-19 shot from their local doctor’s office, according to a poll released in June by the African American Research Collaborative and the Commonwealth Fund.”

“One-third of unvaccinated Hispanics said they believed receiving a Covid vaccine could complicate immigration status for themselves or their family, despite the Biden administration’s assurances that it would not, according to a national survey from the African American Research Collaborative and the Commonwealth Fund this month.”

“But the pandemic has disproportionately affected Black, Latino and Native Americans. There’s a direct correlation between the rates of COVID-19 hospitalization and deaths among racial and ethnic groups. A poll of more than 12,000 Americans ages 18 and up on the vaccine released last week by the Commonwealth Fund and the African American Research Collaborative found that unvaccinated people of color are more hesitant about getting the coronavirus vaccine than their white counterparts.”

“The massive American COVID-19 Vaccine Poll is a partnership between the African American Research Collaborative (AARC), The Commonwealth Fund, The National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO), and other national organizations. The survey also found that 15 percent of New Mexicans who had their first shot do not plan to get their second dose. Many of those respondents said they think one shot is enough for them to feel protected.”

“According to a study released this week by the African American Research Collaborative, almost one-third of unvaccinated Black Americans who expressed some hesitancy to get the vaccine say the discrimination their communities have faced within the health care system makes it hard to trust that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
Top reasons for hesitancy among unvaccinated Black and non-Black respondents included believing that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is dangerous and can cause blood clots and that the vaccine can give you COVID and make you sick.”

“The Commonwealth Fund partnered with the African American Research Collaborative to conduct a 12,000-person survey to better understand why people from the Black, Latino, Native American, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities might be reluctant to get the coronavirus vaccine and to ask about access issues and incentives that would encourage people to get a shot.
More than 40 percent of Native Americans, African Americans and Latinos who said they were hesitant about the vaccine also experienced discrimination by the health system, including denial of specialist referrals, the opportunity to speak with a physician or care in their preferred language.”

“In the largest study of its kind released this week, the African American Research Collaborative surveyed more than 15,000 Black, Latino, and Native American people and found more than 40% are still hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
More than 70% said it’s because they have trouble finding transportation or getting time off work. Nearly one-third said it’s their history with discrimination that’s made it hard to trust that vaccines are safe and effective.”

“The nationwide poll of more than 12,000 people was conducted jointly by the African American Research Collaborative and the Commonwealth Fund. Racial disparities were evident in the breakdown of the unvaccinated. In total, 42% of the respondents had not been vaccinated; in contrast, 46% of Blacks, 47% of Latinos, and 44% of Native Americans were unvaccinated. Meanwhile, just 40% of whites and 31% of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) were in that category. Yet it was White Americans, more than any of the other racial group, who bought into the rampant misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.”

“According to the African American Research Collaborative, discrimination and racial injustice was the second most important issue for Black voters during the 2020 presidential election. Over 75% of respondents think racism and discrimination against Blacks increased over the last four years. An American University survey labeled young Black Americans as “key 2020 swing voters.”
June 16, 2021
“The nationwide poll, by the African American Research Collaborative and the Commonwealth Fund, highlights how vaccine hesitancy is still a critical issue, especially among communities of color. Nearly one-third of unvaccinated Black Americans and one-fifth of unvaccinated Native Americans who expressed some sense of vaccine hesitancy say the discrimination their communities have faced within the health-care system makes it hard to trust that the Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective, the study found.”

“A survey conducted by the African American Research Collaborative, the NAACP and the Vera Institute of Justice last November shows that discrimination and racial justice were the second most important issues to Black voters after the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Henry Fernandez, a national pollster with the African American Research Collaborative, sampled thousands of voters in recent months to learn their priorities and concerns. Though “COVID dominates,” discrimination and racial justice are No. 2 among Black respondents,” he said. Next are jobs and the economy, followed by police reform.”
