16 Jan 2021. Half or more of American adults express negative opinions about the way Covid-19 vaccines are distributed, according to a recent survey. Findings from the survey conducted last week by by polling company Morning Consult and shown in this weekend’s infographic were displayed on Tuesday by business research company Statista.

The results show six in 10 survey respondents (60%) describe the Covid-19 vaccination campaign as frustrating, while about half call it disorganized (52%) or too slow (51%). Fewer respondents, between three and four in 10, use more positive terms to describe the process: effective (39%), strategic (36%), and moving at the right pace (31%). In addition, 40 percent of respondents say the U.S. process is worse than most countries, while 30 percent say it’s better.

Other findings from the poll, not shown on the chart, underscore the public’s mixed feelings about the vaccination rollout as the incoming Biden administration takes over the task. While half or more of respondents use the words optimistic (56%), relieved (54%), or happy (50%) to describe how they feel about getting a Covid-19 vaccine, almost as many say they’re skeptical (50%), anxious (47%), or afraid (41%).

Morning Consult conducted its national tracking poll online with 2,200 adults in the U.S. from 6 to 8 Jan. 2021.
