Asian Americans Lead in Intent to Get COVID-19 Vaccinations

A friend of mine had posted about this recent Pew Research report on ‘Intent to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine Rises to 60% as Confidence in Research and Development Process Increases.‘  It surprised me that Asians are currently more likely to get the COVID-19 vaccine than any other demographic group, but I imagine this is the case that Asians have the overall highest education of any demographic group as well as income, which also correlates with high intent to get a vaccine.  Also, many doctors, nurses, and other medical workers are Asian American and have felt the effects of the virus and associated racism.

I personally plan on getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available, although medical personal and nursing home residents have priority for the first available vaccines in my area. I just got my flu shot the other day. So hopefully, I won’t be catching COVID-19 or the flu anytime soon!
