Two in five Californians have doubts about the safety of a COVID-19 vaccine. In a new Public Policy Institute of California survey, about 40% of Californians remain unconvinced they would get immunized if a shot was available right now. 2/3 of respondents said they were concerned that a vaccine against the virus was being rushed. Still, the majority of Californians said they’d likely get vaccinated. The poll follows Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement this week that he’d put together a panel of 11 scientific experts to review the safety and efficacy of a future COVID-19 vaccine.
